Terrorist Disengagement and De-radicalisation


In this chapter, Kurt Braddock explores terrorist disengagement and de-radicalisation. Most terrorists eventually leave violence behind. Our understanding of why they move on has often been very poor. Braddock outlines what we know about how terrorists disengage and what this then means for those who are interested in encouraging militants and their supporters away from campaigns of violence.
