About Jeffrey M. Bale

Dr. Bale has studied extremist and terrorist groups for nearly two decades – long before it suddenly became “fashionable” in the wake of the 9/11 tragedy – and has published numerous articles on terrorism, right-wing extremism, Islamism, and covert operations. He is updating a large book manuscript on neo-fascist terrorist networks in Cold War Europe, co-editing a volume on New Religious Movements and Extremist Politics, and preparing three new monographs, one on Islamist networks operating in Europe, another on the alleged links between dissident left- and right-wing radicals in the West and Islamist groups, and still another on “conspiracy theories” about 9/11 and other major terrorist attacks. His research responsibilities at MonTREP include preparing detailed terrorist group profiles and other in-depth qualitative studies on terrorist ideologies, motivations, and operational techniques.
