Tracking Sympathy and Support of Muslims for Terrorism in Muslim Countries and in the United Kingdom
This project aims to use existing survey data to better understand beliefs and behaviors of Muslims in a range of international contexts. The project involves:
1) Analysis of possible predictors of sympathy for and justification for terrorism, using existing survey data from a range of U.S. and international sources including past and proposed START surveys;
(2) Analysis of data from American National Election Surveys 2008-2009, including activism and radicalism items developed by McCauley and Moskalenko; and
(3) Analysis of data from Zogby surveys of U.S. Muslims, 2001-1007.
This project is a follow-up and expansion of previous previous START-supported international survey work. See International Survey Capability and Mobilization For and Against Terrorism in the Islamic World.
