what are some of differences you see between how scholars view terrorism as a topic to be studied and how counterterrorism professionals (law enforcement, military, intelligence, etc.) view terrorism as a threat to be neutralized?
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
are various differences between scholars views on terrorism and the counter terrorism
views on the same. To start with, scholars are interested with the terrorists
psychology while the counterterrorism professionals are more concerned with
eliminating terrorism. Besides this, the counter terrorism units are more
concerned with suppressing the influence of terrorism through the use of law
and war. This is not the case with scholars. Through studying the psychology of
the terrorist, scholars seek to minimize their influence through social change.
they want these characters to e taken to correctional facilities and change
their ways to the better. Besides this, scholars view terrorism as a result of
some dissatisfaction of the terrorists and they need these issues to be
addressed with immediacy to change this. On the other hand, the terrorism
professionals view it as a malicious act inspired by destructive instincts with
no credible basis and they should be eliminated. These differences separates
the scholars views and their counter terrorism counterparts on the subject.
