Building tPP

Hello from tPP! This blog will serve as a basis to report on the progress of our coding, analysis and reporting as we continue to study the way in which acts of political violence are prosecuted in the United States since 1990.

Beginning in September 2018, we will post weekly updates for the project. Teams of researchers will have the opportunity to share insights gained in our analysis of the data set, discuss challenges in growing the selection of cases, and provide an opportunity for experts in the field of Terrorism Studies, Security Studies, Public Policy and Law to send feedback and questions.

If you are a member of the Miami University community and you would like to find out more about the project or become involved, please send an email to Dr. Michael Loadenthal, the project’s director, and he will be in touch with you. Miami students may have the opportunity to join the team. If this interests you, please complete the application here, and we will be in touch.

In the mean time, you can learn about the project, learn about our growing team, see some of the datasets we’re including in our analysis, explore how terrorism is defined and how it is prosecuted, examine other meta-analyses of terrorism, review a growing listing of resources for studying terrorism, or suggest a case for inclusion in the dataset!
