20. Making and managing terrorism and counter-terrorism: the view from criminology  

Martin Innes and Michael Levi

This chapter examines how ideas and concepts derived from criminology can inform our understandings of terrorism and counter-terrorism in insightful and innovative ways. Terrorism is designed as communicative violence that seeks to work by sending messages intended to influence the views of a wider public. The analysis attends to how: terrorism has been constructed as a social and political problem in the contemporary era; the role that has been attributed to extremism and processes of radicalization; and, the extent these influence the framing and conduct of counter-terrorism responses. The particular perspective set out accents how terrorist campaigns and counter-terrorist responses routinely develop in interaction with each other.
