Research Topic: When Terror Works: Modern Terrorist Tactics and Their Success

Abstract:  In this proposed research, I will investigate the tactics of modern terrorist groups (1880s?- present) that have been most successful in bringing about their desired political goals. This research is important, for in order to effectively fight terrorist organizations, it is crucial to study their tactics. This has become especially relevant after the terrorist attacks of 9/11/2001 plunged the U.S. into a "War on Terror." In order to carry out my research, I will match modern terrorist attacks with the organizations behind them and their stated goals and whether the attacks accomplished those goals. I will use this data to analyze the tactics that have been most successful. This research will add to our knowledge of terrorism and can be applied to helping form counter-terrorism strategy.
