CSR is a quarterly magazine by CREST (Centre for Research and Evidence on Security Threats), which is based in the Psychology Department at Lancaster University. The magazine provides a jargon-free gateway to the very best knowledge in social science on understanding, mitigating and countering security threats.
The Centre for Research and Evidence on Security Threats (CREST) is a national hub for understanding, countering and mitigating security threats. CREST brings together the UK’s foremost expertise in understanding the psychological and social drivers of the threat, the skills and technologies that enable its effective investigation, and the protective security measures that help counter the threat in the first place. It does so within a context of significant stakeholder and international researcher engagement, and with a clear plan for sustained and long-term growth.
This latest issue (CSR: After Islamic State) focuses on the decline of the Islamic State and what happens next. It also features an interview with Professor Paul Taylor on not only what makes a group successful, but how to help some groups, like terrorist cells, fail.
