CREST: Centre for Research and Evidence on Security Threats

Lead Research Organisation: Lancaster University
Department Name: Psychology

Abstract

The social sciences have made important contributions to our understanding of security threats and the skills and technologies that can mitigate them. However, these contributions have yet to achieve their full impact on practice for two reasons. First, they draw on a diverse set of disciplinary perspectives and epistemologies, and are rarely understood holistically. As a result, there remains much to be learned from their systematic integration. Second, many contributions have been made without a full appreciation of the challenges and constraints faced by the security and intelligence agencies. There is thus a need to facilitate researcher-stakeholder exchanges that promote understanding and empower researchers to make impactful contributions.

The Centre for Research and Evidence on Security Threats (CREST) will deliver a world-class, interdisciplinary portfolio of activity that maximises the value of social science to countering threats to national security. CREST brings together leading researchers from seven disciplines, government and industry stakeholders, and communication specialists to coordinate an international network of excellence that delivers five Agendas. These Agendas seek to enhance the skills and understanding of agency practitioners, develop capacity and capability in academia, build mutual understanding between stakeholders and academia, and maximise the impact of social science research and analysis.

The KNOWLEDGE SYNTHESIS AGENDA will deliver state-of-the-art reviews that address key stakeholder questions by mapping out the evidence base and by providing policy and 'best practice' recommendations. Each participating Institution will lead one of five programmes: Actors and narratives; Ideas, beliefs and values in social context; Understanding and countering online behaviour; Eliciting information; and, Protective security and risk assessment.

The ORIGINAL RESEARCH AGENDA will build on Knowledge Synthesis by generating theoretically motivated, high-quality new research that either addresses gaps identified in the existing literature, or demonstrates the operational relevance of existing knowledge to stakeholder contexts.

As part of the Knowledge Synthesis and Original Research Agendas, £1.89m of CREST's funds will support COMMISSIONED ACTIVITIES, including synthetic reviews, workshops, toolkit development, and research projects. Funds will be allocated via a transparent and competitive process that delivers scientific excellence, stakeholder relevance, and value for money.

With support from an Advisory Board and Programme Ambassadors, the COMMUNICATION AGENDA will use a range of innovative media (e.g. video briefings, interactive toolkits) to ensure that outputs from the Knowledge Synthesis and Original Research Agendas are communicated effectively to a range of audiences. Target audiences include intelligence officers to improve operational effectiveness, policy makers to support evidence-based policy, industry to help generate sector growth, and the public at large to increase awareness of the challenges faced within the UK.

The NETWORKING AGENDA will deliver a range of events (e.g. workshops, 'hackathons') that support interaction between research and stakeholder communities at both strategic and grass-roots levels. These events will be designed to draw together a community of contributors whose breadth goes beyond traditional boundaries and whose interaction leads to new and innovative contributions to theory and practice.

The CAPACITY-BUILDING AGENDA will ensure the long-term sustainability of CREST while also delivering a step-change in capability in three areas: (1) the next generation of researchers and educators within the discipline (e.g. through PhD training); (2) the formal professional development of officers in the intelligence agencies (e.g. through online training, secondments); and, (3) the economic effectiveness of industry (e.g. SMEs) through knowledge exchange.

Planned Impact

CREST's activities are designed to bring a step change in the understanding and evidence base available to stakeholders and public audiences. The KNOWLEDGE SYNTHESIS AGENDA will deliver state-of-the-art reviews framed to address stakeholder questions, while the ORIGINAL RESEARCH AGENDA will develop this evidence base in areas identified by stakeholders as being of the uppermost importance. The COMMUNICATIONS and NETWORK AGENDAS provide the platform for wide impact both by guaranteeing that existing research reaches its beneficiaries and by promoting new dialogues between parties interested in a range of practice and policy issues.

Benefits

The benefits of CREST's activities include:
- More Informed Decisions. Our KNOWLEDGE SYNTHESIS AGENDA will translate research evidence into practical insights that stakeholders can easily use
- Improved Accountability. The evidence base provided by our outputs will strengthen the basis on which stakeholders form their practices and policies
- New Practices. Our ORIGINAL RESEARCH AGENDA will develop practices that are more effective and efficient (e.g. for interviewing)
- Better Value for Money. By documenting the basis of our guidance, stakeholders can consider their local constraints and identify the solution most appropriate for them
- Public Reassurance. Sharing knowledge about the effectiveness of security practices (in ways that do not compromise security) will help the public gain an understanding of, and confidence in, the work of the responsible agencies

Beneficiaries

The UK SECURITY AND INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES, the National Crime Agency, the Research, Information and Communications Unit (RICU), and the Police Services of the UK and Northern Ireland are the principal beneficiaries. The Actors and Narratives and Ideas, Beliefs and Values in Social Context Programmes will enhance investigators' understanding of the aetiology of extremism and other threats. The Understanding and Countering Online Behaviour and Eliciting Information Programmes will improve a range of investigative and operational capabilities in face-to-face and online contexts. The Protective Security and Risk Assessment Programme will enhance the tools and evidence available to the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure and wider commerce seeking to protect against threats.

INTERNATIONAL AGENCIES, particularly those within the 5EYES community, will also benefit in the ways described above. For example, the Eliciting Information Programme will make significant contributions to practice within the FBI's High-Value Interrogation Group. Similarly, the Ideas, Beliefs and Values in Social Context Programme will support the Australian Government's 2014 CVE programme and its emphasis on working with communities.

POLICY MAKERS tasked with delivering the UK Government's CONTEST strategy, particularly the PURSUE and PREVENT pillars, will benefit from original research that sheds light on effective, ethical methods of investigation and prevention. They will also benefit from opportunities to solicit expert feedback at CREST's networking events.

RESEARCH UNITS/LABORATORIES such as Dstl will benefit in two main ways. First, the Knowledge Synthesis outputs will reduce the need for in-house reviewing, expediting project start-up times and freeing resource for classified research. Second, our original research findings will provide 'benchmarks' against which to evaluate in-house solutions, while the data itself may provide a 'test standard' for evaluating new solutions offered by vendors.

SMALL-MEDIUM ENTERPRISES developing technologies relevant to national security will benefit from the opportunities for engagement provided by our Network Agenda, as well as opportunities for accessing academic excellence provided by our Capacity-Building Agenda. They will particularly gain from engaging in offered collaborative studentships, which will facilitate access to world-class research at low cost.

Description CREST's activities have significantly exceeded this year's objectives, as set out in our 2015/16 forward plan and accompanying KPIs.

1.1 Address key stakeholder questions by reviewing the state-of-the-art
CREST's understanding of the funders' requirements matured following our roadshows, roundtables, the efforts of the research-to-practice fellow, and bilateral working-group discussions. All of CREST's activities have been shaped by such discussions and a significant proportion (~29%) of additional work was integrated into the Programmes to respond to the requirements. Over this year we have conducted over 35 reviews of the state-of-the-art.

1.2 Undertake theoretically motivated, high-quality new research
From their inception, CREST Programmes have focused on developing research that is 'REF-able' in quality and ecologically valid enough to address the stakeholders' interests. CREST has 30 active research projects that use qualitative and quantitative methodologies and cover the disciplinary spectrum of behavioural and social science. Many are interdisciplinary. Their quality is evidenced by 19 academic publications and 23 peer-reviewed conference presentations.

1.3 Commission synthetic reviews, workshops, and research projects
CREST's first commissioning call focused on 15 broad topics and offered up to £1.25M at 100%fEC. It received 136 submissions requesting £11.6M, for which we secured 428 peer reviews by 260 international experts over a 3 week period. We commissioned 9 projects (worth ~£900k at 100%fEC) that combined 6- and 12-month projects and involve a range of disciplines.

From May 2016, we engaged with stakeholders to identify priorities for the second commissioning call. This iterative process has proven successful in identifying a discrete number of topics, for which we will make a call for proposal at the end of October 2016. This call will offer up to £900k at 100%fEC, which is more than originally proposed due to careful savings on research and administration.

1.4 Produce innovative outputs that effectively communicate knowledge
Outputs include CREST Guides, which provide succinct overviews on important single topics; CREST Primers, which act as brief educational pieces (mainly aimed at the public and novice security professionals); CREST Reports, which provide detailed accounts of an area, or conversations that were had during a conference; and CREST Security Review, which introduces academic knowledge to a wide audience. Everything is freely available at https://www.crestresearch.ac.uk. Further insights into radicalisation are made available at https://www.radicalisationresearch.org. To date we have published 50 short briefs, longer reports, and conference posters, 15 print articles on research, a magazine, and other resources (e.g., blogs). Spread across core and commissioned projects, these resources include: a series of primers on religious and ideological aspects of Islam; guides on evidence-based techniques for enhancing memory and eliciting truthful information; primers on emerging security threats, such as the counter-jihad movement; and reports detailing the presentations and observations made as part of 'masterclass' conferences.

1.5 Run engagement events that encourage academic-stakeholder interaction
CREST delivered 35 network events during the year that reached over 800 attendees, including its first annual conference, major roadshows and a professional masterclass, each with audiences of between 50 and 120. It collaborated with Government departments, international funders and other research centres to engage practitioners, policy makers and academics in seminars and workshops. Its roundtable discussions helped convert research into practice, and improved academic awareness of stakeholder requirements.

1.6 Produce the next generation of researchers and professionals, and engage SME and industry to support innovation.
CREST continued to develop its PhD programme beyond the initial cohort by securing funding for other PhD studentships, successfully securing and funding a 6-month EPSRC internship, and running where possible joint events in which ECRs can interact. After funding, the founding Institutions also made ECR academic appointments and CREST has sought to actively give these individuals opportunity (e.g., by having them co-supervise PhDs, by funding conference attendance). Over the year we engaged with other Government Departments and industry, highlighting the importance of social science and, in some cases, working jointly on an activity (e.g., arranging a networking event with a major FTSE100 company).

Description A full report is available at: https://crestresearch.ac.uk/resources/directors-report-2017/ 2.2 Communications CREST published 79 short briefs, longer reports and posters (up 58% on last year), as well as four further issues of CSR. Spread across core and commissioned projects, these resources include: guides on the model statement and unexpected question techniques; a glossary of Islamic extremist material; a series of reports from workshops on 'After Islamic State,' and, a report on barriers and facilitators of community reporting. We've also extended the reach of our online presence. We have more than doubled the number of visitors to our existing website and social media platforms. We have been particularly active in producing videos, and now have 22 short introductions to various research topics available online. We also launched online presences on Flickr (where we make our bespoke images available), Facebook and LinkedIn, in order to broaden our reach to the general public. Although assessing the true impact of this activity is a challenge, some positive indices include: (1) 18 press stories and 17 TV and radio appearances that ensured CREST product were seen by a potential audience of more than 13m people; (2) a doubling in the output on our websites (352 posts in Y2); (3) a more than doubling of visitor numbers to the CREST website; (4) more than trebling in the number of tweets (1472 in Y2); (5) an two-fold increase in the circulation of CSR, including to government officials as far away as New Zealand. 1.2 Networking CREST delivered around 60 events that reached over 2,000 attendees, most of whom were stakeholders. These included seminars and workshops, a two-day early career event, conferences on 'Children, Justice and Communication' and 'Protective Security', a collaborative event held with Government on 'Conspiracy Theories, Disinformation and Security Threats', and presentations at 'Learning at Work' Week and Lancaster University's Community Day. Our second annual conference focused on bringing the academic communities together. It featured the work of ECRs, research programmes and commissioned projects, with quick-fire presentations, researcher speed-dating, themed sessions and a display of 39 posters. CREST researchers also presented at international conferences and at numerous Government and industry briefings. Committed to meeting the needs of our funders and other stakeholders, we held 18 roundtable conversations (e.g., on Sikh radicalisation, sequence analysis, and secure mobile working). These events received feedback such as: attendees "learned more about the value of rapport-based techniques, which they report have been put into practice since the roundtable"; and, the researchers provided "a wealth of evidence that can be taken straight into our work." We also held a 'festival' in September 2017 within stakeholder venues, delivering 18 events (i.e., CRESTfest). These events reached an audience of 658 practitioners on a variety of subjects, from trust in online environments and decision inertia to Russian foreign fighters and the potential threats of refugee flows. In addition to direct value to stakeholders (e.g., "This was one of the best sessions that I have attended during my time at this organisation"), the feedback received at these events was helpful to researchers because it highlighted gaps in existing evidence and made clearer how ongoing work could be most usefully applied. 1.3 Capacity building International collaborations. CREST's has strengthened its connections with multiple government agencies in the US, Canada, and Australia, with many of these partners now actively contributing to the Centre's projects or networking initiatives (e.g., providing data, making introductions to appropriate attendees). Our researchers have won several awards from international Associations over the period (e.g., EAPL mid-career award), have delivered 11 keynotes, and have initiated links with cognate research groups in North America (e.g., event with TSAS) and Australia (e.g., even on bystander reporting).
