Dr. Haroro J. Ingram is a senior research fellow with George Washington University’s Program on Extremism. His research primarily focuses on the role of propaganda and charismatic leadership in the evolution and appeal of violent non-state political movements; militant Islamist propaganda targeting English-speaking audiences; and the role of strategic communications in national security operations, strategy and policy, particularly in the areas of counterterrorism and countering violent extremism. Ingram’s work draws heavily on primary source materials, most of which is collected during field research in countries across the Middle East, South and Southeast Asia. He currently runs several in-country applied research projects in these regions mostly focused on enhancing civil society CVE capabilities. Ingram’s research has been published in Studies in Conflict and Terrorism, Australian Journal of Political Science, RUSI Journal, Australian Journal of International Affairs, War on the Rocks, The Atlantic, The National Interest and The Washington Post amongst others.
He has been a visiting fellow with institutions such as the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism (The Hague), the Naval Postgraduate School’s Defense Analysis Department (Monterey) and the Australian National University’s Department of International Relations (Canberra). A former national security practitioner, Ingram regularly consults across government, private and civil society sectors.
