Lowy Institute research fellow and former army officer Rodger Shanahan conducted the research to better understand the motivations of Australian terrorists. He collected data on 173 citizens and residents who were known to have joined terrorist organisations or who have been charged with terrorism offences.

Boris Johnson’s government has pledged that its post-Brexit immigration policy will end free movement and preferential treatment for EU citizens coming to live in the UK. The Conservative Party and ministers have vowed to make entry requirements subject to skills and job offers, as well as restrict benefits and increase charges for future EU migrants. Critics have accused the Tories of portraying European incomers in overwhelmingly negative terms - bolstering a stereotypical impression that they tend to milk the system rather than contribute to it. The UK goes to the polls on December 12 in an election that the prime minister hopes will give him the majority he needs to take the UK out of the EU by January 31.
