Organizational Behavior of Terrorist Groups

Jeyong Jung, Julak Lee

Abstract


Terror attacks have been typically performed by group members, which implies that perpetrators were not independent actors, but acted violently as being part of a larger group.  In addition, the execution of terrorist attacks is not only facilitated by macro-level factors but also as the tools to increase payoffs, survival, and maintenance at the group level. As links between disgruntled individuals and society, organizational behavior elements are something that needs to be examined. In this paper, several organizational behavior theories to compare were applied and contrast between terrorist groups and normal organizations under the categories of mobilizations, decision-making, and leadership.
