Running head: THE DYNAMICS OF TERRORISMAbstractThis research analyses and interprets the criminal behavior of different types of terrorists to increase public safety by helping the relevant authorities to identify and prevent terrorist attacks, as well as to manage terrorist threats and incidents effectively. It also helps the government to create effective legislation for combating terrorism, as well as for the prosecution and management of terrorists, in respect to human rights.The paper is organized in chapters. In the first chapter, the various methods used to inform this research are: The research approach in which there is the use of an inductive method. Accurate observations were used to generate theories and conclusions for the research. Small trials that produce qualitative data are used in this type of approach. Interviews which help in identifying participants’ emotions, feelings, and opinions regarding terrorism are some of the ways that were used to collect data. When carrying out the research, I encountered a partial human error which leads to misinterpretation of the received data causing uninformative conclusions.In the second chapter, the paper explains the discussion of the major difficulties in defining the term terrorism as it lacks a universal definition. Some of the key features of terrorists are; the use of force illegally, political motives and many other activities that help in defining terrorism. Different types of terrorism were stated and explained in details, for instance,State terrorism, which entails the systematic use of terror by a government to control its population.3
On the other hand, Political terrorism aims at making part of the community or the entire community to experience fear through terrorism activities.Some of the other categories of terrorism include religious terrorism, pathological terrorism, issue oriented terrorism, separatist terrorism, and civil disorder.
