Whilst not new, crime, extremism, and terrorism continue to destabilise many parts of the world. Ruthless gangs, Mafia groups, and drug cartels keep murdering thousands. Social, ethnic, and political tension often fuelled by extremist views persist. And 20 years after 9/11, the struggle against terrorism appears by no means over.
What drives people to crime, extremism, and terrorism? Can we define such terms? What have countries done to counter such issues? What are the major dilemmas countering crime, extremism, and terrorism? How is their threat evolving?
