The International Institute for Counter-Terrorism (ICT)

ICT is working to develop innovative public policy on global terror through applied research on the phenomenon of terror and methods of coping with it. ICT aims to research the psychological aspects of counter-terrorism and to formulate recommendations which will on one hand reduce the efficacy of the strategy of terror and on the other hand improve the public’s ability to endure this phenomenon. ICT’s uniqueness is expressed, among other ways, in the research methodology it has adopted: special think tanks composed of people from different disciplines and from both the academic and security world. Since its establishment, ICT’s activities have focused on several areas: academic-applied research; conferences and seminars; consulting services for decision makers; public diplomacy and educational activities; discussion and brainstorming forums; and building and maintaining databases.
