A new framework is necessary to explain the suicide bombing phenomenon and properly direct prevention policy decisions. An effective framework should apply Durkheimian concepts to study suicide terrorism. Durkheim’s study and classification of types of suicide provide an insight of suicide terrorism, but there are important differences between ordinary suicide and suicide terrorism. Despite these differences, when Durkheim’s principles are applied to the phenomenon of suicide terrorism, it suggests that suicide terrorism will flourish in highly integrated and highly regulated social environments. Durkheim (1951) defines suicide as “all cases of death resulting directly or indirectly from a positive or negative act of the victim himself in which he id fully aware of the outcomes”. To commit suicide, an individual has to have some idea of what he/she is doing.
