Forschungsprojekt: Vienna Observatory of Applied Research on Terrorism and Extremism (VORTEX)

The project started in October 2015 and, on the one hand, aimed at analysing jihadi online strategies, and, on the other hand, aimed at developing alternative, Islamically legitimate contents. The cooperation with the LibForAll-Foundation (Jakarta; with branches in Winston-Salem, Kairo, Leiden, Magelang) and the globally biggest Islamic Organisation Nahdlatul Ulama, which propagates a pluralized, tolerant Islam, in Indonesia helped to reach these goals.

The project was funded by the Ministry of Interior.
