Root Causes of Terrorism by Tore Bjorgo
Book DescriptionThis team of international experts analyses the possibilities and limitations of preventing or reducing terrorism by addressing the factors that give rise to it and sustain it. The key questions raised include: * what are the main circumstances that provide preconditions for the emergence of various types of terrorism? * what are the typical precipitants that trigger terrorist campaigns? * to what extent is it possible to reduce the problem of terrorism by influencing these causes and circumstances? * should we address those factors that sustain terrorist campaigns rather than root causes? This book is edited by Tore Bjorgo - Senior Research Fellow at the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI), Professor and Research Director at the Norwegian Police University College.

Preventing Crime, Hardback (October 2015)
This book develops a general, comprehensive model for preventing crime: one that can be applied to prevent a wide range of crimes from domestic burglaries, criminal youth gangs and driving under the influence to organized crime and terrorism. This book assesses nine 'prevention mechanisms' and shows how they reduce future acts of crime.
Dynamics of a Terrorist Targeting Process, Hardback (October 2015)
Based on unique source material, the authors provide a detailed insight into the operational aspects of the 22nd July 2011 attacks in Norway, particularly focusing on Anders B.

Social Policy and the Eurocrisis, Hardback (October 2015)
In this study, an international and multidisciplinary team take stock of the promise and shortfalls of 'Social Europe' today, examining the response to the Eurocrisis, the past decade of social policy in the image of the Lisbon Agenda, and the politics that derailed a more Delorsian Europe from ever emerging.
