Lisa McInerney is a Research Fellow in the School of Law and Government, and the Institute for International Conflict Resolution and Reconstruction, at Dublin City University. Lisa is Programme Manager for VOX-Pol, a European Commission-funded ‘Network of Excellence’ focused upon violent online political extremism.

Lisa’s research interests are in violent political extremism and processes of violent radicalisation with a particular interest in the potential for violent radicalisation via the Internet. Analysis of violent political extremist narratives aimed at radicalising youth — across a range of ideologies — forms the core of Lisa’s most recent research along with exploring the potential for development of effective counternarrative strategies.

Invited to contribute on related issues at a variety of international events including the OSCE and the US Naval Postgraduate School, Lisa has also published in a Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) volume on ‘Intelligence and Security Informatics’, in IEEE Computer Society, and has co-edited (with Maura Conway) a special issue on terrorism in ‘old’ and ‘new’ media in Media, War & Conflict in which she also had a co-authored paper on the framing of ‘JihadJane’ in the US press.
