Chapter 29: The threat of home-grown terrorism: an Australian perspective
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.
