Workshop: Modus Operandi of right-wing terrorists

On 15-16 March, C-REX is hosting a large international workshop on the operational and tactical decision-making (modus operandi) of right-wing terrorists, involving a group of 20 renowned scholars from ten different countries.

This workshop will serve as a baseline for a forthcoming special issue of Perspectives on Terrorism to be co-edited by C-REX Director Tore Bjørgo and Jacob Aasland Ravndal, Postdoctoral Researcher at C-REX.

On the first day of the workshop, the participants will give short 15-minute presentations of their papers. This session will be open to C-REX affiliates, invited practitioners and other researchers, practitioners, or students with a particular interest in this topic.

We have limited number of seats and registration is required within March 10. The workshop is now fully booked, registration is no longer possible.
