(To access and download, please click the image or Monograph)

by Muhammad Haniff Hassan and Tuty Raihanah Mostarom

Counter-ideology is increasingly being studied as a feature of a rising number of counter-terrorism and terrorist rehabilitation programs around the world. At the same time, it is necessary to also consider the public’s role in counter-ideology. The community needs to be inoculated against extremist interpretations of religion that promote intolerance, reject conventional political frameworks, and threaten peace and stability. This monograph provides insight into Singapore’s decade-long experience in confronting the threat of Islamist terrorism in the country, since the local cell of the regional Jemaah Islamiyah was uncovered in 2001.
