Monterey Terrorism Research & Education Program

 Mission Statement

"The Monterey Terrorism Research and Education Program (MonTREP) has three main goals: to research topics related to terrorism studies and extremist movements; to educate students about the history and trends of these groups; and to generate policy recommendations that can guide professionals in counterterrorism and related fields. Our vision is to be an academic and professional resource to MIIS students, those professionals concerned with terrorism related issues, and the wider international security community."
