Shadows of Ghosts: Developments in the Understanding of Terrorist Psychology

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Psychological research on terrorists has long dismissed the simplistic idea that an obvious terrorist personality exists or that terrorists frequently display personality disorders. Instead, research has found that terrorists in psychological terms are generally surprisingly ordinary and unremarkable. More nuanced insights into terrorist psychology, however, have been hindered by a lack of access to actual terrorists and particularly direct psychometric data. This paper will present emerging findings from research drawing on first-hand interviews and psychometric assessments with terrorists. The findings will be discussed in terms of both 'radicalisation' and 'deradicalisation' and the potential relevance for both risk assessment and management.
