Since 9/11 there has been unprecedented interest in terrorism across political, media and academic discourses. Regarding the latter, earlier this year The Guardian (2008) reported a 23-fold increase in academic articles cited ‘terrorism’ since 2001. Given this major refocusing, it would seem that the conceptual, theoretical and empirical tools available to criminologists leave them particularly well placed to understand this phenomena. However, many of the problems that have continually plagued ‘terrorism studies’ remain unresolved and, thus, present crucial issues for criminologists to negotiate. This paper assesses where terrorism research goes from here and, crucially, what criminology may have to offer the investigation of such manifestations of violence.
