Memorial Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism (MIPT)
The Memorial Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism (MIPT) is a non-profit organization dedicated to preventing terrorism on U.S. soil or mitigating its effects. MIPT was established after the April 1995 bombing of the Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City, and it is funded through the Department of Homeland Security's Office of Grants and Training (G&T).
NIJ recognizes the critical need to expand existing policing and transnational crime portfolios to help respond to terrorism. In the past, NIJ has supported research about U.S. domestic right- and left-wing terrorism, but until now little research has been conducted on international terrorism.
