This book explores the interrelationship between terrorism and policy relevance from a range of critical perspectives. In particular, it questions the politics of policy-relevance; that is, it interrogates how epistemological and practical pressures to produce policy-relevant research shapes prevalent understandings of (counter)terrorism, and vice-versa.

It also reflects on Critical Terrorism Studies' (CTS) relationship to policy-relevance. Should CTS eschew engagement with policy-relevance and maintain a position outside the orthodoxy, or are CTS scholars uniquely positioned to offer meaningful alternatives to contemporary counterterrorism practices? Read thus, the question of policy relevance is central to CTS' identity and represents an essential juncture as to how associated scholarship might develop into the future.
