Psychological and behavioral factors of individual terrorists

Write a college-level research paper describing the psychological and behavioral factors of individual terrorists (i.e. recruits and suicide bombers; NOT leaders such as Bin Laden).

Address different radicalization processes/models in the final paper such as Moghaddam’s Staircase, so you only need to research and discuss individual psychological and behavioral factors in this paper. Also, remember that “psychological” does not mean “psychotic” and we are only addressing those of sound mind who deliberately choose violence for a political purpose, or retribution or to instil fear (not crazy mass shooters).

Assignment Specifics:

The body of your report is to be at least three FULL pages in length (not counting title page and references) and is to contain the following:

A brief introduction, with the topic and your thesis.

A main body, containing the “meat” of the paper, where you provide the requested information supported by class readings and with your analysis.

A conclusion, summarizing your information clearly and concisely.

Make sure you read the instructions carefully and that you focus your paper on answering the assigned questions. This assignment is a research paper. It is not an opinion paper. You need to use scholarly sources to support your thesis. Make sure you use APA style in-text parenthetical citations at the end of every sentence where you are quoting another’s ideas (or any information) that is not your own thoughts and words, like this (Bergen, 2015, para. 14).

Citations are required for paraphrases as well, but not the page or paragraph number in that case. Make sure you use only scholarly and credible sources. (Do not use open websites and you never want to use Wikipedia for a college-level paper). Also, dictionaries and encyclopedias, as well as general news sites (like CNN, FOX News), are not appropriate for college-level research papers.
