Understanding radicalisation is important for criminal justice professionals
In an effort to understand terrorism, particularly for those individuals who work with the perpetrators of political violence, it is vital that the notion of terrorism is seperated from the terrorist. Terrorism is a highly politicised term, a pejorative label applied unevenly across groups. However, for criminal justice, counselling and security professionals acting within the confines of particular legal or social services systems, the terrorist actor must be understood and considered in his/her local context in conjunction with the entirety of their social network, personal background, ideological affiliations and offending history.
