CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION

1.1 Background of the Study
Terrorism is a highly contextual phenomenon. Indeed, the old maxim that “all politics is
local” holds true for political violence as well. We sometimes hear a lot of talk about terrorism as
if it were a monolithic, easily understood term, but it is really the opposite. Terrorism is a
complex issue that has been studied and debated for several decades. In fact, there are dozens of
competing definitions of the term, not only among scholars but among policymakers and
government agencies as well. But one thing holds constant – terrorist attacks do not occur in a
vacuum, but are instead a product of complex interactions between individuals, organizations,
and environments.
Further, there are many different kinds of terrorism, defined primarily by ideological
orientations like ethno-nationalism, left-wing, religious, and so forth. And just like there are
many different kinds of terrorism, there are many different kinds of contexts in which terrorism
occurs. Within each context, we find a variety of grievances that motivate the terrorist group and
its supporters, along with things that facilitate terrorist activities.
