Social study researchers are regularly blamed for failing to update and contextualise their reports on extremist groups to new developments occurring locally, regionally and internationally that continuously keep reshaping and evolving the jihadist movement.  As a result there is a significant risk that their network analysis is based on incomplete or outdated models and data, leading to wrong conclusions and faulty risk assessments. 


Correct assessment can only come from an up-to-date, complete and correct representation of data. In order to contribute to this, the Brussels International Center for Research is aiming to update some of its previous papers and research, to include the latest and recent developments and to synthesis real time data and new insights regarding topics related to Extremism and Violent Radicalism.
