This chapter evaluates home-grown terrorism in Australia post-9/11. The chapter advances three propositions concerning the nature and direction of the home-grown terrorist threat to Australia. First, home-grown radicalization is now the primary source of terrorist threats to Australia. Second, as a tactic, terrorism is not only ‘accessible to any group or individual with a grievance’, as Bruce Hoffman once observed, it is becoming a preferred form of criminal violence. Finally, counter-terrorism efforts are improving, but will need greater flexibility to prevent and pre-empt further terrorist attacks on home soil.

Almost two decades after the events of 9/11, this Handbook offers a comprehensive insight into the evolution and development of terrorism and insurgency since then. Gathering contributions from a broad range of perspectives, it both identifies new technological developments in terrorism and insurgency, and addresses the distinct state responses to the threat of political, or religiously motivated violence; not only in the Middle East and Europe, but also in Africa, South and Southeast Asia, and North and South America.
