dc.description.abstractTerrorism and issues of national security continue to sit at the top of the political agenda. In the years following 9/11, counter-terrorism laws have been broadened and continue to receive public support, despite their capacity to restrict civil liberties and target certain groups in the population (Lynch, McGarrity, & Williams 2015). In addition, pervasive rhetoric exists that link terrorism, Muslims, and Islam (Cherney & Murphy, 2016). The normalisation of these discourses within social and political narratives can be problematic not only for the livelihoods of those who feel targeted, but also for the perpetuation of reactive responses to national security threats. It is thus important to understand the nature and extent of public attitudes towards counterterrorism measures, and the drivers of these attitudes. A primary aim of the Attitudes to Punishment Survey is to gauge public attitudes towards laws introduced to address terrorism in Australia. In doing so, this study seeks to examine the extent to which the Australian public is punitive towards terrorism. Additionally, attitudes towards punishment in the traditional crime context are measured. This survey also measures tolerance to diversity to determine whether support for punitive measures is exacerbated by the perception that certain minority groups in Australia pose a greater threat of terrorism.
