Kurt Braddock researches the effects of specific types of communication in the processes surrounding the use of terrorism. Specifically, Dr. Braddock’s work focuses on (a) how terrorist groups use different persuasive techniques to draw individuals to join their groups, and (b) how counter-terrorists can use similar techniques to get individuals to leave terrorist groups. His work has been published in a number of communication, psychology, and terrorism journals, including Communication MonographsPersonality and Individual DifferencesTerrorism and Political Violence, and Studies in Conflict and Terrorism.
