Research Summary

Dr Bouhana is both a political scientist and a criminologist by training, with a particular interest in the contribution of criminological theory and methodology to an understanding of terrorism and radicalisation. More specifically, her research interests centre on the systemic and ecological processes involved in the emergence of radicalising settings, the role that these settings play in the individual development of a terrorist propensity, as well as the mechanisms which underpin individual vulnerability to moral change. Other research areas include the design, evaluation and implementation of threat reduction technologies.
