The National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START) is a research and education center at the University of Maryland, College Park focused on the scientific study of the causes and consequences of terrorism in the United States and around the world. It maintains the Global Terrorism Database, which includes over 125,000 terrorist attacks which it describes as the most comprehensive unclassified data base on terrorist events in the world.


The Pew Research Center is a nonpartisan American think tank (referring to itself as a "fact tank") based in Washington, D.C. It provides information on social issues, public opinion, and demographic trends shaping the United States and the world. It also conducts public opinion polling, demographic research, calls people randomly through their cell phone and landline numbers, media content analysis, and other empirical social science research.


The Handa Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence (CSTPV) at the University of St Andrews in Scotland is the oldest academic research centre for the study of terrorism in Europe. Although inter-disciplinary in its expertise, it has a particular concentration of scholars working on political science and international relations.
