Jihadology presents Think Tank/NGO/Policy/Gov Reports and Articles of 2010, Part I

NOTE: Yesterday I posted my list of academic journal articles of 2010, which you can see here and this past Friday I posted my list of books of 2010 here. Since there are a lot of useful reports for researchers, students, and others I decided to break this list up into four parts so it wouldn’t be too overwhelming as one post. Tomorrow I will post part II of this list. Below is a list of Think Tank/NGO/Policy/Gov reports and articles that I have either read or am interested in reading that were published in the past year. If you have any other suggestions to the below reports and articles that deal with global jihadism or Islamic studies, please feel free to let me know in the comments section.
