    Counter Terrorism

    As the origins, scope and impact of terrorism and violent extremism extend beyond conventional security and military paradigms — covering religious, political, socio-economic, demographic and at times historical vectors— the onus for developing effective and comprehensive counter-terrorism and counter-radicalization campaigns falls within the purview of eminent research institutes like the Manohar Parrikar Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses (MP-IDSA).

    It is for this reason that the MP-IDSA has established the Counter Terrorism: Counter Radicalization & Terror Financing (CTCRTF) centre, which will look into various aspects of terrorism as well as ways of developing effective counter-terrorism strategies and campaigns. In addition to studying the complexities involved in the process of terrorism, the centre would seek to develop counter radicalisation and counter terror financing strategies and programmes.

    The Purpose

    The purpose of MP-IDSA’s CTCRTF is four-fold:

    1. Collect, collate and build database of terrorism-related activities and incidents, covering radicalization, terror financing and cyber-terrorism domains for empirical analyses and research at the provincial, national and international levels.
    2. Devise, develop and test counter-terrorism measures, programmes and policy initiatives, covering counter-radicalization, terror financing and cyber-terrorism campaigns at the provincial, national and international levels
    3. Build synergies by developing networks with relevant provincial, national and international experts, officials, institutions, forces, initiatives and campaigns involved in activities related to counter-terrorism.
    4. Teach, disseminate and build general awareness of security forces, national and international institutions, academic centers and the general population over issues related to terrorism and counterterrorism measures and operations.

    The Mission

    To be the premier counter-terrorism center of the country in terms of research and analyses, for developing policy studies and campaigns through enhanced connectivity and network with relevant institutions, forces, experts and officials at the regional, national and international levels.
