Title: The Ecology of Terrorist Organizations
Creators: Crenshaw, Edward; Jenkins, J. Craig
Keywords: terrorists
terrorist organizations
Issue Date: 2008
Abstract: How do terrorist organizations act as agents of change? Since Sept. 11 there has been enormous interest in terrorist groups. Large amounts of data have been collected about the terrorists and their attacks. However systematic, empirical data on terrorist organizations, along with data on political groups that choose not to use terrorism, have never been collected and analyzed. Edward Crenshaw and J. Craig Jenkins, along with a multidisciplinary team, will examine data collected by the Minorities at Risk Organizational Behavior (MAROB) project at University of Maryland's Center for International Development and Conflict Management. These data will be analyzed to study the birth and death of terrorist organizations as part of a larger social ecology.
Description: Research project funded in academic years 2007-08 and 2008-09
