Typology of Terror

This project documents the characteristics of Australians’ contribution to global jihad in the Islamic State era. The dataset represents the largest open-source examination of Australian terrorist offenders to date. It collates data on Australian citizens and residents charged with terrorism offences or known to have joined radical Islamist terrorist organisations since the start of the Syrian civil war. Data has been gathered from a range of sources including court documents from terrorism trials; media reports; social media profiles; business and charity registration data; and associated interviews with journalists, government and law enforcement officials. To protect extended families no names are used. This interactive database is a live document and will be updated as new information becomes available.
