This paper examines terrorism from a crisis management perspective. It provides a framework for understanding terrorism in terms of organizational and social processes, causes and consequences. These processes include crisis preconditions, triggering events, and the expansion and resolution of terrorism crises. Terrorism causes include structural, social and political conditions, organizational influences, cultural and religious influences, and individual factors. With this expanded view of terrorism, decision makers in government and private organizations can better identify preventive and remedial actions.
