In this video, Professor Andrew Silke (Professor of Terrorism, Risk and Resilience) discusses his work on counterterrorism. He speaks with Dr Lara Frumkin on how his research was initially in a fringe area for psychologists and how when working with government, Andrew focused more on organised crime than counterterrorism. The transition of radicalisation and counterterrorism from the side-lines of academic research and government work to a core topic occurred rapidly. For Andrew, developing an understanding of how to work with government by applying and being open to using psychological research in an action oriented sphere defines much of his work.
