The Global Terrorism Research Centre (GTReC) emerged from the multidisciplinary Global Terrorism Research Unit, which formed in 2002. GTReC was officially established in 2006 with seed funding from the Department of Premier and Cabinet, State Government of Victoria, as a part of its $5.6 million counter-terrorism initiative.

GTReC staff teach within the Master of International Relations course.
