Terrorism is an inherently social phenomenon. While it is commonly assumed that terrorists kill and die for a cause, they are motivated and strengthened by social connections. This colloquium brings together researchers in this area to discuss terrorism's root causes in the interpersonal relationships between terrorists, competition between terrorist groups within societies, and strategic alliances between organizations. Note as of 10:00am 1/27: Erica Chenoweth and Michael Horowitz will be unable to join us due to inclement weather on the East Coast.
