Expert Day with Paul Gill, PhD

Testing the Reliability, Validity and Equity of Terrorism Risk Assessment Tools

Current efforts to develop scientifically rigorous and operationally relevant research related to the risk assessment and threat management of the terrorist remains worryingly underdeveloped. With reference to recently successfully executed terrorist attack case studies, this workshop first walks through the theoretical and practical problems faced in terrorism risk and threat assessment. Despite all of the scientific problems with the study of radicalization indicators, an increasing number of risk assessment tools are being developed in the published literature. The workshop will chart the commonalities and differences and empirical underpinnings in the risk assessment indicators and protocols of the existing risk assessment tools popularly used. These include, but are not necessarily limited to, the Terrorist Risk Assessment Protocol 18 (TRAP-18; Meloy et al., 2015), the Identifying Vulnerable People tool (IVP; Egan et al., 2016), the Extremism Risk Guidelines (ERG 22+; Lloyd & Dean, 2015), and the Violent Extremist Risk Assessment guide (VERA; Beardsley & Beech, 2016) and its later iteration (VERA-2).
