The Iranian Revolution was a hard-fought battle for those in favour of the Islamist model of governance, inspiring similar movements that have had varying degrees of success across the region.
An analysis of obituaries for Islamic State and Australian soldiers shows some alarming similarities, not the least of which is the idea that their deaths should be given meaning by further conflict.
The British home secretary has decided not to seek assurances from the US that it wouldn't use the death penalty for an IS duo arrested in Syria. This must be opposed.
IS is a distinctive kind of threat – and the atrocities it's committed demand a tailor-made form of justice.
The wars against Islamic State and al-Qaida show that military responses may seem to work in the short term but don’t change much in the long run.
Libya’s proposed elections and any subsequent interim government will fail if the country’s challenges aren’t addressed.
A tougher security approach to terrorism may be counterproductive and could even potentially undermine the supremacy of civilian government in Indonesia.
The world cheered the defeat of IS in the Middle East, but the insurgency is far from over.
Preventing attacks in Indonesia by militants returning from the front lines in the Middle East may take more coordination with Australia.
The attacks show not only a shift in women's roles in violent extremism, but also the involvement of families in acts of terror.
The internet may provide the forum, but radicalisation remains a social process.
A recent intervention by the US, the UK and France is only part of a far broader – and deadlier – campaign.
An attack on a voter registration killed at least 57 people, and left scores more deciding where to go now.

What should the UK do with foreign jihadis who return home?
The Canadian deal to sell helicopters to the Philippines has finally been killed. What took so long, and why was it the Philippines, not Canada, that ultimately scrubbed the deal?
Over the past three decades, Turkey has launched countless operations across the Iraqi and Syrian borders, succeeding only in making matters worse for itself. This time may be no different.
Such children suffer unique challenges.
Some African countries present a facade of democracy. The absence of substantive democracy is contributing to instability on the continent.
