Meets IL Mandate(s): Cultural Competency & Procedural Justice
This course will cover some facets of social network analysis and its relevance to families, and extremism/terrorism. An overview of the phenomenon of extremists/terrorists in families will be shared. The importance of this type of criminality will be underscored. This will be followed by numerous and insightful case studies of U.S. and foreign-based, family-linked extremists/terrorists. By providing these case studies, a better appreciation of this issue will take hold. For contrast, case studies of family members informing about their extremist/terrorist kin will be shared.
Additionally, the presentation relates to diverse law enforcement responses that can be undertaken to combat terrorism in general, and family-linked violence in particular.
