Terrorism provides a rich yet understudied domain to examine creativity. Because violent ideological organizations must continue to generate covert and novel ways to recruit members, raise finances, and plan attacks, theories of creativity typically applied to more conventional organizations can also apply to terrorist organizations. The present effort reviews the extant literature on malevolent creativity, examining commonalities and differences about studying creativity in the domain of terrorism. Reviewing both lab-based and field-based research on terrorist creativity, we present a call for research to measure creativity in this domain.
