For Academic Consensus Definition Terrorism is an anxiety-inspiring method of repeated violent
action, employed by (semi-) clandestine individual, group, or state actors, for idiosyncratic, criminal
or political reasons, whereby in contrast to assassination the direct targets of attacks are not the main
targets. The immediate human victims of violence are generally chosen randomly (targets of
opportunity) or selectively (representative or symbolic targets) from a target population, and serve as

message generators. Threat and violence based communication processes between terrorist
(organization), (imperiled) victims, and main targets are used to manipulate the main target
(audiences), turning it into a target of terror, a target of demands, or a target of attention, depending on
whether intimidation, coercion, or propaganda is primarily sought.
