Kantsir V. "Psycho-legal portrait of the terrorist person"

Lviv Polytechnic National University, Institute of Jurisprudence and Psychology

The modern understanding of the psychological and legal portrait of a person of a
terrorist through the prism of general psychological characteristics, criminal law and
criminological phenomena is analyzed for a qualitatively new understanding of the problems
connected with the organization of terrorist groups, the commission of terrorist crimes and
their disclosure. The opinions of Ukrainian and foreign scientists in the field of combating
terrorism are analyzed.
