FPRI’s Marc Sageman and Lawrence Husick Quoted in Publico


Both Sageman and Husick were quoted on the subject of “lone wolf” attacks.

Sageman was quoted on identity from a 2014 lecture held at FPRI.

“No need to be politicized. Something happens that touches us and suddenly we activate our social identity. ” An attack on one is an attack on all. “We started to think of us as a soldier who defends his group”, says Sageman.

“The latest attacks in Europe have been effective to spread fear. And this “is the objective of any terrorist act,” said Lawrence Husick, researcher at the Foreign Policy Research Institute and co-chair of Terrorism Studies Center in Philadelphia. “The attacks on innocent civilians, who are doing ordinary things, are effective because those who take attack of knowledge create a stronger empathy with the victims.”

The Foreign Policy Research Institute, founded in 1955, is a non-partisan, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization devoted to bringing the insights of scholarship to bear on the development of policies that advance U.S. national interests. In the tradition of our founder, Ambassador Robert Strausz-Hupé, Philadelphia-based FPRI embraces history and geography to illuminate foreign policy challenges facing the United States. more about FPRI »
