By Mia Bloom (Minerva)

Minerva-funded researcher, Mia Bloom conducts research on terrorism and political extremism. Her original Minerva-funded project, “Documenting the Virtual Caliphate” collected and archived thousands of pieces of ISIS propaganda, images, memes, and breaking news. In this recent article, she discusses how COVID-19 will inspire terrorist groups to capitalize on the raging pandemic, the public’s increased fears, and the lack of confidence in governments by engaging in future targeted attacks.
