In her study of the terrorism research field, Edna Reid describes how terrorism research at the Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies developed over the years in collaboration with other right-wing research centres and think-tanks to form "an invisible college of terrorism researchers":

During the 1970s, governments, international organizations, and research centers such as the RAND Corporation, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), Georgetown University, and the Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies, Tel Aviv University…sponsored numerous terrorism conferences, research projects, specialized anthologies, study groups, and official inquiries into terrorism. The efforts helped to nurture terrorism research and create numerous forums which allowed cross-fertilization of ideas, sharing of resources, and creation of an invisible college of terrorism researchers.
