Policy Brief

Terrorism, Crime, and Conflict: Exploiting the Differences Among Transnational Threats?

Author : Britt Sloan and James Cockayne
Date : February 2011

This policy brief offers eight targeted policy recommendations for combating the convergence of terrorism, crime, and politics. Rather than simply warning about the potential interaction and synergy of these transnational threats, the brief explores possibilities for exploiting their divergences. Drawing on insights from the criminological, conflict transformation, peace-building, development, and sociological arenas, the brief presents a wide array of policy ideas relating to, for example, security sector reform, post conflict economic policy, strategic communication, and law enforcement strategies.
