Feb 26, 2013


Prof. Thomas Hegghammer, current Zukerman fellow at Stanford University’s Center for International Security and Cooperation (CISAC), visited West Point on February 25th. In addition to meeting with CTC faculty and a roundtable with members of the SOSH department, Prof. Hegghammer delivered a lecture to Terrorism Minors as well as students in SS465.  The lecture drew from Prof. Hegghammer’s most recent academic publication, an article in the American Political Science Review, entitled “Should I Stay or Should I Go?” which discusses why some jihadist fighters choose to conduct operations at home and why others go abroad to fight.  For a copy of the article click here.  For more information about Prof. Hegghammer and his research click here.
