The aim of this project is to explain the thinking and behaviour of Islamic terrorists in Indonesia. We will pay particular attention to five dimensions: history, religion, ideology, psychology and gender. We will seek to understand the respective roles of individual personality and group dynamics. This will be the first such multi-disciplinary study of terrorism in our region. Unlike many other studies which treat terrorism as an undifferentiated global phenomenon and ignore local variations, this project will highlight the distinctive and diverse nature of Indonesian jihadism and its rapidly changing nature.
