Junior Research Project

The 2016-2017 Junior Research Project will help you to understand why people fall under negative influences, specifically how people are influenced to commit acts of terror and violence within the United States. Below are the main questions you are seeking to answer.

  • Why do you think hate groups and other domestic terrorists predominantly target people of color or immigrants and blame them for economic problems that they are not responsible for?
  • What motivates terrorists to kill those who are different from themselves or have different values?
