We are an interdisciplinary group of scholars, experts, and practitioners focused on the mission of bringing reason, evidence, and rational argumentation to the global discourse on counter-terrorism for the expressed purpose of defending classic western liberal democratic values. By bringing concepts from the fields of philosophy, ethics, political and social science, international relations, military studies, journalism, and computer science, our aim is to function as a world-leading center of gravity and hub whereby existing institutions of law, military, government, media, and academia as well as individual persons concerned with the ethical issues of global terrorism may better coordinate, debate, reform, and act.
