Just wanted to throw up a quick set of links for you. Looking for reputable associations and task forces working on the problems of civil wars, terrorism, and political violence can be rough. These links are a good place to start.
TAPVA. The Terrorism and Political Violence Association. Simple enough acronym, right? They are based out of the University of Leeds
ICPVTR. The International Centre for Political Violence and Terrorism Research. Ok, you got me. It’s not an association, or a task force. It IS a part of a school, with excellent resources, and the occasional call for abstracts.
Aon. Insurance publication, but a neat terrorism and political violence risk map. Check it out.
Task Force on Political Violence and Terrorism. APSA initiative. Great online resource. See? I told you there would be a task force on the list…
