This chapter discusses terrorism-related deterrence and influence analytically. The approach taken is to use conceptual modeling as a way to think about how to influence adversaries. Models depict terrorist decision making and group and individual motivation for participating in terrorism to further pinpoint which elements, actors, and processes within each model might be most susceptible to influencing strategies.
