Event Overview: ABOUT THE PRESENTATION
Having completed degrees in anthropology and international relations and spent some time travelling around the world, Lise found herself accepting a job with the UK Ministry of Defence. Thrown into a world of rank, acronyms, and cold army bases she discovered a passion for exploring the complex journeys that lead individuals to both engage and disengage with violent extremism. In this talk Lise will debunk some of the most common myths around violent extremism, explore some of her current research in the preventative space and highlight the significant knowledge gaps that blight the terrorism domain. She hopes that by the end of the talk, students will be inspired to engage in careers that can help provide answers to some of these knowledge gaps.
ABOUT THE PRESENTER
Lise worked for the Ministry of Defence and then went on secondment to the Home Office. In 2010 in search of the sunshine she moved to Australia and joined Macquarie University. She currently leads the terrorism stream in the Department of Security Studies and Criminology. She continues to work with government departments and was recently awarded an Australian Research Council Discovery Grant to explore how young audiences interpret, engage with, and re-produce online violent extremist content.
