As part of its award-winning series Trial and Terror, The Intercept tracks all international terrorism prosecutions in the United States since 9/11. We'll show you how you can use this data, which is updated regularly and available online in multiple forms, to take your reporting deeper on local or national terrorism and criminal justice. We'll discuss our methodologies and how to access and work with our interactive tool as well as the raw data we release under Creative Commons licensing.
