We have tried to include only credible, professional organizations though might not have been fully successful in doing so.

Countering Violent Extremismhttp://www.usip.org/category/issue-areas/countering-violent-extremismwebsiteA handful of extremist movements—including ISIS, Boko Haram, the Taliban, and Al-Shabab—fuel the world’s most violent wars, concentrated in collapsed or fragile states in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. These conflicts, and associated terrorism, often stem from social and political grievances that are best addressed through peacebuilding approaches such as strengthening dialogue and mediation skills and supporting the rule of law.

International Centre for Counter-Terrorism (The Hague)Personal Characteristics of Lone-Actor Terroristshttp://icct.nl/publication/personal-characteristics-of-lone-actor-terrorists/reportThis Research Project Report analyses personal variables of 120 perpetrators of lone actor terrorism, resulting in a number of policy recommendations. The authors emphasise the importance of focusing on different subgroups and of benchmarking in order to accurately interpret results. Likewise, they underline the necessity of lowering barriers to mental health services, as well as multi-agency cooperation. Taken together, these factors would contribute to formulating an effective response to the challenge of lone-actor terrorism.
