Abstract:

The NATO Human Factors and Medicine Research and Technology Task Group 140, Psychosocial, Organizational and Cultural Aspects of Terrorism Final Report gives a comprehensive look at the issues of terrorism, radicalization, counter radicalization, and deradicalization and addresses resilience to terrorism as well. It examines the role of instigators, ideologues, supporters and operators, and the effects of terrorism on those working to fight it, those who work in high threat security environments and on the general public. Reports regarding Europe, Pakistan, and the Middle East highlight changes in terrorism leadership, groups, strategies, ideologies, recruitment and the use of the Internet. Holistic models of terrorism as well as resilience to terrorism are presented by the group, with research into counter-terrorism efforts within prisons, in communities and efforts to understand the motivations and psychology of terrorists and their victims.
