Over a Decade Later: What Now? What Next? A Multilayered Assessment of Terrorism in its Current and Future Manifestation
MetadataShow full item record
This report is primarily an analytical product intended to provide a range of perspectives on terrorism and possible responses to it. Contributors to this report come from three primary groups: social science researchers, interagency analysts, and military operations officers. In essence, it is a marriage of contemporary social science theory, applied research, and hard-earned operational experience. The paper is limited in scope and is intended to challenge the reader to ask better, more relevant questions about terrorism. It aims to be “descriptive” not “prescriptive,” though a degree of implied bias may be evident in parts. The purpose of this paper is to accomplish the following: • explore how scholars, practitioners, and operators delineate and frame “terrorism”1 in both its current manifestation and as anticipated in the future; and • seek to better refine and address the “disease” (preconditions, perceptions, and underlying drivers) and not just the “symptoms” (terrorist attacks) of terrorism.
