Abstract:

Gang groups and terrorist groups generally seek achievement of their interests through violent activities. Both of the groups operate within well organized group structures. They use deadlier methods against their targets. They generally prefer youths, especially males, for recruitment. Despite these and other commonalities in the background of them, there is no adequate level of, if there is not any, research that comparatively focus on these violent groups. With this in mind, there are two main purposes of this study. First, it aims at revealing similarities and differences between gang and terrorist groups in terms of structural, operational, tactical, motivational, ideological, and some other characteristics. Second, it focuses on different theoretical approaches used in the studies on gang and terrorism related violence, and points out differentiation in the perception of these two groups. This study is based on detailed analysis of existing literature.
