Dr. Steven Windisch

Steven Windisch is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Criminal Justice at Temple University. He has published widely on the issue of political violence, radicalization, and disengagement. As a collective, this research investigates the overlap between conventional criminal offending and political extremism. Dr. Windisch is particularly interested in how physical/psychological trauma and interpersonal violence intersect with political violence. His research has received support from the Campbell Collaboration, Department of Homeland Security, National Consortium for the Study of and Responses to Terrorism (START), and the National Counterterrorism Innovation, Technology, and Education (NCITE) Center of Excellence. Some of his current research projects include a meta-analysis of online hate speech interventions and in-depth interviews with political extremists’ family members to identify barriers to intervention/official reporting.
