Abstract: This dissertation addresses a key variable determining the threat posed by terrorist groups. It relates the threat posed by terrorist attacks to how capable a terrorist group is to carry out attacks. As such, it links the threat not to the willingness of a terrorist group to conduct attacks but to its ability to do so. I maintain that for any active terrorist group the willingness to commit attacks is a necessary requirement. A terrorist group’s capability, in contrast, depends on a variety of internal and external factors. Study- ing how differences in those endowments or constraints induce varying capabilities offers a tangible approach to understand the threat posed by a specific terrorist group.
