Abstract

Radical and contentious activism may or may not evolve into violent behavior depending on contextual factors related to social, political, cultural and infrastructural conditions. Significant theoretical advances have been made in understanding these contextual factors and the import of their interrelations. However, there has been relatively little progress in the development of processes and capabilities that leverage such theoretical advances to automate the anticipatory analysis of violent intent. In this paper, we describe a framework that implements such processes and capabilities, and discuss the implications of using the resulting system to assess the emergence of radicalization leading to violence.
