The Terrorism Research Center in the Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences houses the American Terrorism Study, a comprehensive database on American terrorism. The American Terrorism Study provides a record of federal terrorism cases resulting from indictment under an FBI “terrorism enterprise” investigation from 1980 to the present. The Terrorism Research Center is engaged in several projects examining the spatial and temporal dimensions of terrorism, precursor and preparatory terrorist crimes, and prosecutorial and defense strategies used in terrorism trials. The center’s research has been funded by the Department of Homeland Security through the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism and the Department of Justice through the National Institute of Justice.
