Зеленков М.Ю. Socio-psychological universals of a contemporary terrorist’s personality

Published in journal "Вопросы безопасности", 2017-3 , pages 88-99.

Resume: The research object is a terrorist’s mind. The research subject is the basic socio-psychological universals, which, in the author’s opinion, are typical for the members of contemporary terrorist organizations. The results of Russian and foreign research in the sphere of analysis of terrorist activity demonstrate the ambiguity of interpretation of the motives of a contemporary terrorist. The purpose of the study is to analyze the methodological approaches to socio-psychological traits of a terrorist’s personality, synthesize the acquired results, and generalize, classify and unify them. The research methodology is based on general scientific methods of cognition: analysis and synthesis, the comparative and system methods. Special attention is given to the analysis of the materials of judicial and investigational practice and the polysemantic approaches to the cognition of the criminal psychology of terrorist nature. The author outlines and classifies social and psychological universals, which, in the author’s opinion, can be typical for the majority of individuals involved in terrorist organizations in Russia and abroad. Practical importance of the study consists in the provision of anti-terrorist agencies with new scientific data about the socio-psychological sphere of terrorism. 

Keywords: personality of a terrorist, individual, terrorist psychology, terrorist organization, terrorist acts, terrorism, comparative analysis, socio-psychological universals, classification, ideology
