The Vicious Triangle
Terrorism, tyranny and foreign intervention - these three things are not separate and opposed, but symbiotic pillars of a single oppressive power-structure which has held the Arab world in its vice-like grip for over a century. All attempts thus far have relied on empowering one against the others, which only empowers all three, leading to repeated crises and breakdown.
We explore how the vicious triangle can be defeated by a new, long-term-focussed foreign policy paradigm which prioritises native agency and empowers civil society to take charge of its own reality, rather intervening to resolve catastrophes.

Islam After ISIS
The menu of ideas in the Muslim world is changing; it has been for some time, driven by demographic and social change, global interconnectedness, shifts in the power balance and unprecedented literacy in the Muslim world. Old debates are being re-examined, new ideas evaluated and dogmas rejected among young Muslims, trying to reconcile their faith with the modern world and the barbarism wrought in its name.
The Radicalisation Roadmap
We believe that radicalisation is the process of rejection of equality and human rights, and that a roadmap leading to it - through otherisation, collectivisation, oppression narratives and belief in violence - is universal, and not limited to a particular culture or religion. White supremacists, Hindutva, Muslim extremists and more all follow this same path. This must be understood in order to understand how to prevent and reverse it, which is a prerequisite of productive policy.
