An Assessment of Terrorism Studies in Australia: Recommendations and Future Directions
Koschade, Stuart A. (2006) An Assessment of Terrorism Studies in Australia: Recommendations and Future Directions. In Research Network for a Secure Australia - Closed Counter-Terrorism Workshop, July 18, 2006, Melbourne University. (Unpublished)
The field of ‘Terrorism Studies’ in Australia has developed in stark contrast to the field at large. Since the expansive period of growth within the field following the 2001 al-Qaeda attacks and the rise of 21st Century Islamic extremism, terrorism studies in Australia has undertaken significant growth and is now firmly established within academia and national research initiatives. This paper aims to essentially function as a health check for the field in Australia, discussing the development of the field of terrorism studies, the major foci of the field, its development, prevalence, and standing in Australia, its responses to the traditional criticisms of terrorism studies, where the field is situated today, and the directions for the future.
