Dr Haroro Ingram
Dr Haroro J. Ingram is a Lecturer at the National Security College and a Research Fellow with the Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs, The Australian National University. His primary research project analyses the role of propaganda in the strategies of violent non-state political movements, with the Islamic State and the Afghan Taliban as major case studies, and is funded by the Australian Research Council’s Discovery Early Career Researcher Award. Dr Ingram’s research draws heavily on primary source materials, most of which are collected during periods of fieldwork in South Asia (Afghanistan) and the Middle East (Iraq).
Dr Ingram has interviewed current and former activists and fighters from Afghanistan, Iraq, Chechnya and Syria, as well as current and former counterinsurgency and counterterrorism operatives. He has been a visiting fellow with institutions such as the International Centre for Counter-terrorism in The Hague and the Naval Postgraduate School's Defense Analysis Department (Monterey, California). Prior to entering academia, Dr Ingram worked in a variety of national security roles.
He is the convenor of the Sectarianism and Religiously Motivated Violence course in 2017.
