The Psychology of Terrorism: Programs and Practices in Response and Prevention - Vol. 4

By Chris E. Stout | Go to book overview

Foreword

First of all, I want to note the impressive collection of academics, thinkers, activists, and clinicians congregated in this set of volumes. Through their active engagement, the result is a series of works that crosscut an immense range of related factors—historical contexts; group dynamics; social psychological aspects; behavioral, forensic, psychopathological, evolutionary theory, peace-building, and conflict resolution perspectives; as well as the political, clinical, and social aspects of prevention, intervention, and security issues. Global perspectives vis-à-vis understanding, empathy, bias, prejudice, racism, and hate are also represented.

This group of authors offers a unique combination of talents and viewpoints rarely seen in the worlds of academia or activism. Their work and voices move knowledge and understanding forward in a way that will serve as a framework and catalyst for readers to consider ways in which to respond to terrorism in its various displays. Dr. Stout has fostered a self-organizing environment that has enabled this work to be a collaboration of ideas that goes beyond the traditional and almost complacent; instead it is realistically erudite and even provocative in some instances.

I suspect that the readership will likewise be broad and crosscutting—including academics and departments of psychology, political science, religious studies, military sciences, law enforcement, public health, sociology, anthropology, social work, and law, as well as the lay public and the media, policy makers, elected government officials, leaders of nongovernmental organizations, ambassadors and diplomats, military leaders, law enforcement professionals, the intelligence community, and members of think tanks and private and public policy institutes and centers.

Such integration of diversity in thought and perspective parallels our “Forum Plus” strategy at the World Economic Forum. This strategy aims to advance critical issues on the global agenda through the creation of task forces and initiatives that integrate business, governments, international organizations, civil society, academics, and technical experts.
