Michael Kenney is an associate professor of international affairs at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public and International Affairs. His coursework and field research focuses on terrorism, counterterrorism and homeland security. The PG's Ipso Facto blog spoke with Mr. Kenney about counterterrorism -- here's a preview:
Ipso: What's the next big issue on the horizon? What will everyone be talking about?
Kenney: The reemergence of lone wolves, individuals who engage in acts of terrorism without support from larger organizations. The success on the counterterrorism side has led to more lone wolves. Also, cyber has been a great concern, but there's been fewer issues of cyberterrorism, which is different from cyber attacks. Here in the U.S., the reemergence of far-right groups -- white supremacists, sovereign citizens -- there's been an uptick.
