This major research study, a collection of state of the art contributions by world-leading experts in the field on the subject of transnational terrorism and its multifaceted implications, EICTP intends to provide a first-hand account dealing with the imminent sub-conventional threats to current international security environments. Reflections introduced and elaborated cover a wide range of issues dealing, among others, with strategic and hybrid terrorism, the systemic dimension, prevalent actors, counter-narratives, the crime terror-nexus, the role of digitalization and the spiral dynamic between Islamist and right-wing terrorism. The expert papers should provide a condensed overview of current developments, structural linkages and important academic debates centering around transnational, Salafi-jihadi terrorism and counter-terrorism.
