Abstract: A methodological divide plagues terrorism research. Quantitative and qualitative researchers have drawn mutually exclusive conclusions regarding the root causes of the terrorism. In an attempt to help resolve this conflict, this paper assesses the reliability of the data used by statistical researchers of terrorism. The results demonstrate that issues of construct validity limit the reliability of regression analysis in the field of terrorism; unless quantitative researchers make significant changes in the way they operationalize dependent and independent variables, their work will remain misleading. Ultimately, statistical analysis of terrorism must be paired with other methodologies in order to provide the context necessary to understand raw quantitative data.

Abstract: The lack of a theoretical framework in the study of terrorism has long been recognized. This paper attempts to address this by applying Social Movement Theory to the question of why some groups which use are more successful than others. This aims to inform the development of a typology of terrorism, looking at generalizable features of groups which use terrorism strategically. This paper therefore presents the framework for the operationalisation of the typology through the application of empirical data, which represents the next step in this research project. Social Movement Theory has the advantage of addressing the micro, meso and macro levels of analysis, thus allowing a fuller investigation of the subject. Hence, the key features of the theory, namely political opportunity, framing, and mobilizing resources, will be deconstructed and used as indicators to inform typological development. This aims to identify key differences between groups that use terrorism, and their defining features, and will feed into a discussion on the potential for terrorism prevention. This paper therefore speaks to the critical relationship between theory and practice in the study of terrorism; bringing together theory, an organizing framework for empirical analysis and its practical application.

Perceived Likelihood of Future Terrorism and 9/11-Related Distress Predict Anti-terrorism Policy Preferences" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ISA's 49th ANNUAL CONVENTION, BRIDGING MULTIPLE DIVIDES, Hilton San Francisco, SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA, Mar 26, 2008 Online <PDF>. 2019-11-11 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p251494_index.html>

Abstract: Are public views on anti-terrorism policies driven by concerns about future threats or by emotional responses to a prior attack? A terrorist attack on the scale of 9/11 is both a harbinger of future threat and a discrete, one-time national trauma. We sought to distinguish between a) perceptions of the future threat of terrorism and b) responses to the 9/11 attacks themselves as predictors of Americans’ national security policy preferences. Using an anonymous Web-based survey methodology, we surveyed a nationally representative sample of US adults (N=1613, 75% response rate) in late 2006 and early 2007. Respondents rated the likelihood of another terrorist attack occurring on U.S. soil in the near future. They also reported any experience of terror-related posttraumatic stress symptoms (PTS) in the form of intrusive thoughts and images resulting from 9/11. In addition, respondents expressed their degree of support for anti-terrorism policies in three ways: 1) as having desired an aggressive U.S. response to 9/11, 2) as support for ongoing military involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq, and 3) as willingness to sacrifice civil liberties for security. Multiple regression analyses adjusting for political affiliation, general psychological distress, exposure to 9/11, and other key variables revealed that both perceived likelihood of future terrorism and 9/11-related PTS independently predicted greater support for all three categories of anti-terrorism policies. Moreover, perceived likelihood and PTS interacted such that perceived likelihood of future terrorism did not predict policy preferences among individuals high in PTS. Public views on future-oriented policies may be disproportionately influenced by distressing experiences from the past.
