Two Decades After 9/11: Transformations, Continuities and Trajectories

The September 11 2001 attacks were a watershed moment that reshaped terrorists’ targets and objectives and transformed governments’ counterterrorism responses. The Journal of Policing, Intelligence and Counter Terrorism seeks papers that analyse how 9/11 shaped policing, intelligence and terrorism in the two decades following the attacks.

The articles should use 9/11 as either a starting point or landmark event in analyses of how policing, intelligence and terrorism have evolved and where they are headed. In particular, the journal seeks “big picture” articles about developments since 9/11 that provide insights into transformations in policing, intelligence and terrorism.

Submissions can take national, international or transnational approaches that highlight changes in policies, politics, religious ideologies, violent group behaviors, law or government. Preference will be given to papers that focus on the interplay between policing, intelligence and terrorism.

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

• The origins and development of homeland security
• Multilateral and/or international police cooperation
• National law enforcement training and counter-terrorism tactics
• Community policing practices and strategies.

• Transformations of international intelligence sharing and cooperation
• Legal issues and changes
• Limitations and changes in intelligence, and the rise of technology
• HUMINT and counterterrorism: informants and infiltration.

• The development of counterterrorism and deradicalisation
• Changes in Al-Qaeda and the global jihadist movement
• Terrorist behavioural trends
• The evolution of leaderless terrorism and/or global Salafi jihad
• The rise of technology, such as social media
• Repatriation of foreign fighters and families.
