This project aims to generate new understandings to how to defeat terrorism at its roots of radicalism, by exploring counter ideas to radicalism and utilising them in a counterterrorism strategy. It focuses on al-Qa ida s former ideologues critical revisions of Jihad and ideas which influenced Egyptian Jihadists, inside and outside Egypt, to abandon al-Qa ida, renounce violence and terrorism and to critically analyse al-Qa ida s ideology and strategy. It seeks to explore how al-Qa ida s former ideologues deradicalised their previously radical ideas and how to utilise them as religio-political tools in a general strategy for counterterrorism, extremism and radicalisation in Australia and the world.
