Extremism, Hate Speech, Radicalisation, Conflict, Middle East
My work spans many disciplines and sectors to research the roots of violence and terrorism.
My work spans many disciplines and sectors researching the roots of violence and terrorism, mostly in the Middle East, and more recently, through the databases of the Computer Lab, also in far right movements. Pre-covid I did a lot of fieldwork, interviewing extremists, families, community leaders and so on, for academic research (psychology, anthropology, political science, study of religion) and also for UN agencies and NGOs to inform their programming. I have done a lot of the latter work with refugee communities in the Middle East, including with children in Jordan for UNICEF. I also edit the Cambridge Literary Review and am a contributing editor at Newlines magazine, writing a lot of popular articles as well as academic research.
