Research Project

The Origins of Transnational Terrorist Waves

Transnational terrorism remains often discussed but theoretically underdeveloped and historically unscrutinized. This is so because the bulk of traditional research on terrorism has been descriptive analysis dominated by presentism. The project addresses this dual shortcoming in a theoretically and methodologically progressive way and with the overall purpose of contributing to the development of a general theory of the origins of transnational terrorist waves.
