Charlie Winter is a senior research fellow at the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation (ICSR). He studies terrorism and insurgency, with a focus on online and offline strategic communication, and is pursuing a PhD in war studies at King’s College London, examining how propaganda articulates meaning and, more broadly, exploring how militant groups cultivate creative approaches to governance and war.
Alongside his work at ICSR, which is supported by Facebook as part of the Online Civil Courage Initiative, he is an associate fellow at the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism in The Hague and an associate of the Imperial War Museum Institute in London. Charlie’s work has been published by Critical Studies in Media Communication, Studies in Conflict and Terrorism, Philosophia, the CTC Sentinel, the Atlantic, War On The Rocks, Jihadology and the BBC.
Charlie holds an undergraduate degree in Arabic from the University of Edinburgh and an MA in Middle East and Mediterranean studies from King’s College London.
