STERN - University of Sussex

The Sussex Terrorism and Extremism Research Network (STERN) is located at the University of Sussex, UK, which is a world-leading, research intensive research institution. STERN brings people together from a variety of disciplines, focused on research into ‘terrorism’ and ‘extremism’ broadly conceived. This includes experts from law, sociology, criminology, politics, psychology, international development, and beyond. STERN provides a forum for researchers to share ideas and develop collaborations, as well as a platform for influencing external debate and reform. 

The focus of STERN is outward-looking. STERN’s members have developed sustained relationships with academics, policymakers, NGOs, the United Nations, and other stakeholders at a local, national, and international level. Members have a history of engagement and knowledge exchange with, for example, the Home Office, National Crime Agency, Royal United Services Institute, the European Foundation for South Asian Studies and the Henry Jackson Society.
