With the rise of religiously motivated violence and terrorism, governments around
the world need to develop their religious and ideological capabilities in parallel
with strengthening their law enforcement, military and intelligence capabilities.
Terrorist Rehabilitation: A New Frontier in Counter-terrorism aims to provide
an understanding of the importance of the approach and strategy of terrorist rehabilitation
in countering this threat.
Comprising of nine chapters, this book provides case study assessments of terrorist
rehabilitation practices set against the backdrop of their unique operational and
geopolitical milieu in countries such as Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Indonesia and
Sri Lanka. This will help the reader to form a foundational understanding of the
concept of terrorist rehabilitation by combining the insights, successes and experience
of senior government officials and counter-terrorism experts. In addition, the contributors
provide discussions on religious concepts that have been manipulated by violent
Islamists as a background to understanding religiously or ideologically motivated
terrorism and the avenues open for countering it.
