Lizzie Dearden has been covering terrorism as a journalist since Isis declared its caliphate in Syria and Iraq in 2014. She initially reported on Isis-inspired attacks around the world and the group’s propaganda and strategy, before her work widened to cover other kinds of terrorism. She has focused on terror attacks and prosecutions, security threats and extremism of all kinds in the UK in-depth since 2017 and was the Independent’s home affairs editor before turning freelance in 2023.

Her first book, Plotters: The UK Terrorists Who Failed, is published by Hurst.
