Abstract

This chapter revisits some of the conclusions reached in this author's earlier work, Understanding Terrorist Innovation: Technology, Tactics and Global Trends (London: Routledge, 2007). The chapter first focuses on making some observations about the general treands in tactical and technological innovation in terrorist campaigns, followed by a focus on the factors and conditions responsible for the differences between innovative tendencies of different terrorist organizations. Finally, the conclusion will identify implications for the future, especially in relation to innovative patterns of al-Qaeda and its affiliates.
