Abstract

In the rush to explain lone-actor terrorist radicalization and behavior, analyses highlighted a diversity of risk factors. This chapter organizes this knowledge into a general framework, the risk analysis framework (RAF). The framework incorporates theories that advance explanations about the role these factors play in producing the outcome of interest (e.g., radicalization). More specifically, the RAF draws on a well-developed general theory of crime causation known as situational action theory (SAT). The authors systematically articulate how the kinds of risk factors discussed in the prior literature review interact to produce one or the other. They differentiate between those factors which may act as indicators (needed for the design of detection and mitigation measures) of lone-actor extremist events and those which may be considered causes (needed for the design of prevention and disruption measures).
