Horizon Europe MSCA Doctoral Network GLOCTER

Terrorism remains one of the main security threats facing the European Union (EU) and its Member States, with a considerable impact on European societies. There is therefore a strong need for knowledge and expertise that will enable the EU and its Member States to effectively address the contemporary terrorist threat. The EU-GLOCTER (EUropean GLOCal Counter-TERrorism) Doctoral Network will produce the expertise that the EU and its Member States require to effectively address this threat. The research programme is highly innovative in its emphasis on analysing EU counter-terrorism through the lenses of ‘glocalism’ at different levels, ranging from the local through the EU to the global level, and in the crossing of the public-private sector boundaries. EU-GLOCTER brings seven recruiting institutions with an excellent research track-record in counter-terrorism together with Associated Partners from across the world in order to deliver a world-class PhD programme.

The two main objectives of EU-GLOCTER are:

  1. to provide world-class training to DCs in EU ‘glocal’ counter-terrorism – thinking globally, responding locally; and
  2. to generate scientific excellence and technological innovation in the area of counter-terrorism.

The research programme involves world-leading social scientists (political science, criminology, sociology, policing, and law) in combination with innovative think thanks and industry partners and will combine basic research in order to develop revolutionary methodology for counter-terrorism professionals.
