Would it be possible to anticipate future terrorist innovation in order to take proactive and preemptive measures to avert its development? This project seeks to address the causes of innovation in terrorism in order to generate predictive indicators that could help counterterrorism specialists in law enforcement and intelligence respond to potentially emerging WME forms of terrorism.
The project seeks to expand our understanding of the factors and forces which drive a terrorist group to innovate. By focusing on historical cases of WME innovation in terrorism, the project hopes to move beyond the usual description of threats and risks and towards a greater understanding of early warning indicators of terrorist behavior.
