  • Religious radicalism in Indonesia and its historical roots

    • Abstract: Indonesia boasts the world’s largest Muslim population. As such, it has formulated standardised instruments to detect religious radicalism in schools and working spaces. This article reviews Islamic radicalism and its historical roots, and aims to provide an understanding of Islamic radicalism in Indonesia and its development. The review discusses the differences between the closely related concepts of Islamic radicalism and extremism, and their indicators. In terms of the development of religious radicalism in the country, there is a large number of organisations and sub-groups related to religious radicalism in Indonesia that have evolved as a reaction to colonialism and political turbulence.

  • Social-ecological portrait of two females from Montreal who joined ISIS

    • Abstract: This study focuses on the educational and social contexts of two females who left Montreal (Quebec), Canada to join ISIS in Syria. Using Bronfenbrenner’s (1979) ecological systems theory as the conceptual framework, narrative methodology allowed the collection of rich data on the trajectories of these radicalised minors.  The broad aim of the study was to identify the push and pull factors that contributed to their abrupt departure. Although a few of the many reasons that pushed them were identified, it was not possible to uncover the pull factors/mechanisms that led to their mobilisation. Published on 2023-04-04 11:11:15
  • Decoding the U.S. justice system’s response to typologies of
           domestic terrorism

    • Abstract: This study adjudicates disparities in the United States government’s response to different terrorism typologies under a domestic legal framework. Far Right and Islamic Extremist typologies were compared and informed by Structural-Contextual theory. The study leveraged data from the American Terrorism Study to evaluate empirically prosecutorial approaches, plea and trial conviction rates, the magnitude of investigatory resources applied, and levels of explained variance between groups. Total conviction rates were largely different among groups, with significantly harsher outcomes for Islamic Extremists. The author proposes a variation of Structural-Contextual theory, where a proactive political environment is predictive of more severe outcomes. Published on 2023-04-04 11:11:01
  • 'A stitch in time' (2020): a textile work unpicking our prison system

    • Abstract: This article investigates the motivations behind the construction of my artwork ‘A stitch in time’, which was produced in response to a private conversation with a recently released prisoner. Jeremy Bentham’s idea of the Panopticon as a building, as well as the idea of being ‘constantly observed’ were underlying considerations when developing a framework to contain the images and text from my research. My work highlights the facts and figures generated by a prison system struggling under the weight of persistent underfunding and overcrowding, as well as the group culture created by prisoners in search of a sense of identity, as revealed through their language and art practices.

  • Book review: 'How terror evolves: the emergence and spread of terrorist
           techniques', by Yannick Veilleux-Lepage

    • Abstract: Yannick Veilleux-Lepage explores how terrorist techniques are adopted, changed, adjusted and abandoned over time, using the history of aircraft hijacking as a case study. He employs a refreshing and original approach to tracking the processes of aircraft hijacking over time, treating the development of terrorist techniques as analogous to Darwinian evolutionary thought. The book provides a novel outlook on the origins of terrorist techniques, their evolution, and development. The argument is convincing and sound throughout, and well-illustrated to ensure that the book is not just a highly informative read but an engaging one too. This book will be refreshing to experts and rewarding for novices in the field. Published on 2022-11-02 12:07:18
  • Haunting pebbles

    • Abstract: With the land art performance Haunting pebbles, I wanted to denounce the violence of border crossing in eastern Europe through the lens of hauntology. The use of an artistic performance allowed me to work on time that is passing by. This moment was the waiting for the revenant: both a spectre and the coming-back movement of a spectre — all linked to death, sea and institutional violence. Published on 2022-09-22 10:23:15
  • STAGES Introduction

    • Abstract: For now, this Special Issue is one of a kind. Each piece grows directly out of the cross-institutional network between the University of St Andrews (STA), the University of Glasgow (G), and the University of Edinburgh (E)’s Security studies (S) programmes. Together, we have created the acronym STAGES to capture these ongoing collaborations. In August 2018, we, as a small group of colleagues working at each contributing university started to discuss how our master students can learn more about security beyond the confines of their separate classrooms. As Jorge M. Lasma writes, ‘In many cases, classrooms have slowly come to be seen as the only domains for learning. Other forms and channels of learning and knowledge are viewed with suspicion and sometimes even discouraged for fear of higher costs’ (2013, p. 369). Challenging this idea, we set out to create a collective project to allow different students, with their own unique opinions and viewpoints on security, to meet one another to share their ideas in open, honest and lived ways.

  • Why have the People‚Äôs Republic of China and the Socialist Republic of
           Vietnam been able to create and sustain maritime militias'

    • Abstract: Providing a unique comparison of the maritime militias of the People’s Republic of China and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, this study analyses why these two countries were able to create and sustain maritime militias, and their importance to hybrid warfare. By studying the history, organisation, ideology and the economic support provided to these maritime militias, it highlights the similarities between the countries’ systems, and how this has allowed for their creation and subsequent maintenance. Based on my findings, I have hypothesised that in order for a country to create and sustain successfully a maritime militia it must have a history of “people’s war” and a highly centralised state.
