Lateran: Leaking phenomena in the area of religiously motivated acts of violence and attacks
Funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, the LATERAN project investigates leaking phenomena prior to terrorist attacks. Leaking describes explicit announcements of a violent act as well as behaviors indicating an interest in committing a or planning a crime. Within the sub-project ‚Leaking phenomena in the area of religiously motivated acts of violence and attacks‘, the research group at the PHB examines relevant cases between 2001 and 2018 in Germany. The findings from the project will be used to derive and communicate scientifically substantiated criteria to assessment the seriousness of leaking. The project is realized as part of the civil security research program of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (www.sifo.de).
