What We're Reading

RESOLVE Research Advisory Council member presents this month’s must-reads.

June 2019 | Dr. Alastair Reed

Dr. Alastair Reed, Director of the RESOLVE Research Advisory Council, shares his reading list this month.

“Everything I have been reading lately centers around terrorism and communication and reflects my upcoming research projects. Over the last few years I have focused on understanding extremist propaganda and how to respond to it, examining the role of communications in the prevention space, countering radicalization and recruitment. More recently, I have taken a broader prospective on communications and counterterrorism, exploring the role of strategic communications across the four pillars of the EU counterterrorism strategy—Prevent, Respond, Protect, and Pursue—and in the aftermath of terrorist incidents. How can we design post-incident communications to lessen the immediate, secondary, and tertiary effects of a terrorist attacks apart from the intended goals? In the wake of the Christchurch Mosque attack, I re-examined both traditional media and social media reporting on terrorism. Keep an eye out for new research in these areas that I have been working on with Research Advisory Council members Dr. Haroro Ingram and Dr. Andrew Glazzard coming out early fall.”
