Profiles of Individual Radicalization in the United States: Preliminary Findings (Oct. 2015)

Abstract: 

Preliminary findings from START’s Profiles of Individual Radicalization in the United States (PIRUS) project highlight interesting and policy-relevant trends among individuals radicalized in the United States since World War II. The PIRUS project is a three-year study, currently in its third year, which will combine a quantitative dataset of radicalized individuals with in-depth case studies on their radicalization processes.
