ABSTRACT. Relying on recent research (e.g. Furedi, 2016; Greenfeld, 2016; Gill and Corner, 2017; Horgan, 2017), I show that radicalization and involvement in terrorism are a result of several risk components manifesting in time and place. Those who team up with jihadist terrorist communities are likely to be principled and possess resourcefulness, traits not commonly related to people suffering mental ill-health.

Keywords: mental disorder; violent radicalization; terrorist behavior
