Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Scholarly interest in the study of suicide attacks and terrorism has grown markedly in the post-9/11 era. In this chapter, we draw attention to the main conceptual, methodological, and theoretical issues and debates within the research on the subject. In the process, we highlight gaps in the literature and questions that have yet to be answered.
