The primary purpose of the study was to explore whether collectivistic goals are associated with support for terrorism. Collectivistic goals are those goals that consider the group or the community as more important than any given individual. The study also addressed the issue of different types of collectivism, specifically religion or nationalism, and whether they predict differences in support for terrorism.
