Abstract:

The relationship between terrorism, drug trafficking, and policymaking is examined through the development, implementation, and use of a series of systems dynamics-based models. These activities are intended to provide the basis for future development of a decision aid to support policymakers in combating the narco-terror threat. The models developed for this purpose are: a narcotics, counter-narcotics, and trafficker double agent model; a policy cycle model to manage the trafficker double agent conversion policies; a prototype societal deprivation, affection, disaffection, and advanced terrorist recruitment, training, and narco-terrorist support model; entity security and terrorist activity models; a violence generation model; and policy cycle models to represent the management of social violence and entity security policies. These models illustrate the relationships between deprivation of key resources to individuals and disaffection and ultimate terrorist activity; attack of notional targets by teams of terrorists; deprivation of individuals leading to violence, which can lead to an increase in the level of perceived deprivation; dynamics of policymaking in response to perceived needs; and the impact of corruption on policymaking.
