Differing motivations for terrorism
Analysis of terrorism often means an analysis of terror organizations. In contrast, this analysis investigates individual agents' motivations to support terrorism. These motivations do not only include the aim of terrorism, but also motivations which are exclusively inherent to the individual agent's sphere. The latter can, of course, not be identified in a framework focusing on the organizational sphere of terrorism. Therefore, our approach gives new hints for the combat of terrorism. We allow for different forms of terrorism.
