ISPI's Center on Radicalization and International Terrorism

The Italian Institute for International Political Studies (ISPI) is an independent, non-partisan think tank providing leading research and viable policy options to government officials, business executives and the public at large wishing to better understand international issues. Founded in Milan, Italy, in 1934 thanks to the support of a group of businessmen led by Alberto Pirelli, founder of Pirelli S.p.A., ISPI has always adopted a pragmatic approach in analyzing geographical areas and topics of particular interest to Italy and Europe.

ISPI is the only Italian Institute - and among the few in Europe - combining policy-oriented research with an equally significant commitment to education and training, to conferences and advice on international trends for businesses, Institutions and the wider audience. Its work features an inter-disciplinary approach and partnerships with leading think tanks and universities from all over the world.

The ISPI's Center on Radicalization and International Terrorism focuses on the empirical analysis of violent and non-violent extremism in Europe and the world, with a particular emphasis on jihadist ideology. The Centre is also engaged in the elaboration of practical solutions to counter current threats and is partnered with the Program on Extremism at George Washington University.
