Frumkin, Lara A. and Ford, Paul (2023). Collaborative approaches to countering terrorism. In: Frumkin, Lara A.; Morrison, John F. and Silke, Andrew eds. A Research Agenda for Terrorism Studies. Elgar Research Agendas. Cheltenham, UK: Edward Elgar Publishing Ltd, pp. 211–224.



This chapter addresses the benefits and challenges of academic researchers working with law enforcement personnel to consider good practice for countering terrorism. They start the chapter by reviewing the events of the London Bridge attack in 2017 and then discuss some of the recent progress made in working collaboratively following lessons learned from the attack. By building on positive working relationships, and collaboration borne from tragedy such as London Bridge, a push for a multidisciplinary and cross sector approach is evidenced. The chapter highlights a growing trend of the creation of research centres supporting interdisciplinary academic and government projects whilst noting some potential stumbling blocks. This chapter finishes with a review of select common analytical practices used by law enforcement working on counterterrorism.
