Abstract

Recent research on lone-actor terrorism has found a high prevalence of mental health disorders amongst these offenders. This research note addresses two shortcomings in these existing studies. First, it investigates whether selection effects are present in the selection process of terrorist recruits. Second, it builds upon the argument that mental health problems and terrorist behaviour should not be treated as a yes/no dichotomy. Descriptive results of mental health disorders are outlined utilising a number of unique datasets.
