Having a Criminal Record; Having Personal & Political Grievances; Having Received Diagnosis of Schizophrenia or Delusional Disorder; Having an Enabler; Being Unemployed; Having at Least a Bachelor’s Degree; Being Socially Isolated; Being Single; Living Alone Having Military Experience; & Being Male.
B. The differences and potential relationship between violent and nonviolent extremism.
C. Although some of the projects reviewed in this paper involved comparing individuals who engaged or attempted to engage in terrorism with those who did not, other projects did not include nonviolent comparison groups; Additional research needs to be conducted to examine whether particular risk factors and indicators associated with engaging or attempting to engage in violence vary by extremist ideology; In both of the studies that included only lone-actor terrorists, there was evidence that potential risk factors and indicators associated with engaging in violence may change over time; It is also important to examine risk factors and indicators associated with engaging in other behaviors of concern (e.g., extremist crime more generally, such as that assessed by the ERG 22+); Examining how risk factors interact and combine with each other — as well as with protective factors — is an important area for future research; and many of the risk factors and indicators included in the existing risk assessment instruments and methods discussed above were not examined in NIJ-sponsored research.
D. Radicalization to terrorism.
E. Extremist engagement (the process by which individuals become involved with an extremist group, cause, or ideology); extremist intent (the mindset associated with the readiness to commit an extremist offense); and extremist capability (the ability to perform the offense).
F. May help to reduce vulnerability to violent extremism; may also help connect alienated youth to different social supports, and/or re-engage these youth with their families.; and can also help support families in learning how to reach out to, or stay connected with their children.
