Work conducted on behaviour in terrorist hostage taking incidents is reviewed in order to highlight areas for future research. Both terrorist and hostage behaviour are highly structured and conform to predictable 'scripts' with role-rule consistencies. Areas where research has the potential to contribute to the peaceful resolution of hostage taking incidents are identified.
