Avoiding community backlash in the fight against terrorism (2013–2015)
This project examines community cooperation in counter-terrorism. This has national significance because counter-terrorism measures can undermine public cooperation and create community backlash. This is particularly the case for minority groups (i.e. Muslims or people of a Middle Eastern background). This project will test whether a procedural justice-based model of counter-terrorism can reverse the backlash against counter-terrorism policing and laws within Muslim communities. Outcomes will help improve police and minority group cooperation in the prevention of terrorism.
