Magnus Ranstorp ’85

Posted on February 24th, 2010 by

A new report on terrorism in Indonesia, authored by Dr. Magnus Ranstorp ’85, research director at the Swedish National Defence College and a recipient of a Gustavus Adolphus College Distinguished Alumni Award, was prominently mentioned in a recent Newsweek article by noted columnist Fareed Zakaria. Zakaria’s article–“The Jihad against the Jihadis”–appeared in the February 22, 2010 issue of the magazine, citing Ranstorp’s work as “a careful study examining Indonesia’s success in beating back extremism.” Since graduating from Gustavus with a major in History in 1985 and earning his doctoral degree at Scotland’s University of St. Andrews, Dr. Ranstorp has become a widely-recognized authority on political radicalism and terrorism.
