Using experimental research methods, this project explores factors that influence the likelihood that an individual would be willing to use, or justify the use of, terrorism and whether he/she would mobilize (i.e., take any form of action - whether protest or terror). We explore how the likelihood of such action is related to individuals' levels of perceived grievance and risk, their desire for social dominance, and their attitudes towards authority.
