AVERT Membership Information and Application

Applications for research membership

There are two criteria for joining AVERT as a research member:

1. Research members must be active researchers in any discipline in the area of addressing violent extremism and radicalisation to terrorism. ‘Active research’ is defined as having a) published at least 3 peer-reviewed articles and/or publicly available research reports over the last 5 years; and/or b) being currently enrolled for a doctoral degree (PhD or Professional Doctorate) at a recognised and accredited university; and/or c) receiving at least one externally funded research grant supporting research relevant to AVERT’s focus over the last five years.
