Within several units of this course, you have prepared for your course project, which is due in this unit. For your course project, you will be writing a research paper on a domestic terrorist incident that has occurred in the United States.

  • Discuss the recruitment and radicalization process of lone wolf terrorists in the domestic United States and abroad using the Internet and social media platforms.
  • Explain why terrorists focus on soft targets.
  • Analyze the sociological and psychological impacts that these attacks have had on society.
  • Include three to five recent topics of domestic or global lone wolf terrorist attacks that have occurred. Provide a full synopsis on these incidents to include the sequence of events and the resiliency and reactionary methods used to respond to the incidents. What lessons were learned after each of these events?
  • Offer strategies that can be used to further strengthen the Internet and social media platforms from being used to recruit members, promote propaganda, and radicalize terrorists.

Your final research paper must be a minimum of four pages in length, not counting the title and reference pages.

NO NEWS OR MEDIA ARTICLES ARE TO BE USED IN THIS COURSE.

In this course, you are to research and write as though you are a professional in Criminal Justice, Homeland Security, or Intelligence. Therefore, you are not to use any news or media. Only scholarly, peer-reviewed, government research or official government reporting.

What is scholarly research? A scholarly publication is one in which the content is written by experts in a particular field of study – generally to share original research or analyze others’ findings. Scholarly work will thoroughly cite all source materials used and is usually subject to “peer review” before publication.

What is peer-reviewed research articles? Scholarly peer review(also known as refereeing) is the process of subjecting an author’s academic work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal or as a book.

I do not want to see any sources of information such as, and not limited to FoxNews, CNN, Washington Times, HuffingtonPost, Times, DailyMail, etc. No blogs, internet posts, etc.

Therefore, you may use Google ScholAr (https://scholar.google.com/), which will help weed out the news.

Use the CSU Library and access to ProQuest and others. There is a long list of databases that will help you research and locate many scholarly, peer-reviewed, and government type reporting.
