Abstract

This special issue examines the complex relationship between radicalisation, victimhood and political violence. The interrelatedness of victims and perpetrators has been long recognised in the fields of criminology and victimology but it is has been often ignored in the case of terrorism and political violence. The key aim of this volume therefore is to assist in enhancing our understanding of this interrelatedness with a particular focus on the relevance of narratives, roles and identities of victimhood for both the victims and perpetrators. A second, more policy-relevant dimension is to examine the role of victims and perpetrators in the prevention of terrorism and political violence.
