Understanding Malevolent Creativity in Terrorist Attacks
Could you change a terrorist’s mind? Interrupt an attack in the making?
This project, a collaboration of researchers at King’s College of London and Penn State University, aims to see if counterterrorism workers could disrupt malevolent creativity involved in planning and carrying out terrorist attacks.
They will study violent extremist (jihadist and right-wing) behavior online and apply engineering theory to develop precise interventions that interrupt and stop would-be attacks.
