Theory Seminar: “Interdisciplinarity & Terrorism Studies”, June 8 (NUPI, Norway)
Paul Gill is visiting NUPI to talk about a project which has a goal to make significant advances in increasing our understanding of extremist violence, and thereby reduce the risk for this. In this theory seminar, Paul Gill will talk about the GRIEVANCE project, a research project aiming to make significant advances in increasing our understanding of extremist violence, and thereby reduce the risk. Unlike much other research, GRIEVANCE shifts the focus away from individual qualities (who we think terrorist are) to situational qualities – what violent offenders do and how.
The theory seminar will focus on the conceptual, methodological and interdisciplinarity focus of the counter-terrorism project. It elaborates upon the thinking behind the core principles of their every day work such as their focus on (a) interdisciplinarity (b) problem-oriented approaches (c) scientific methodologies (d) data inputs (e) dissemination outputs and (f) practitioner relevance. It concludes with a discussion of why being embedded within an Engineering faculty is fundamental to many of these pursuits for the research group.
