Takedown cube model is a novel approach for analysing risks and tracing the pathways of radical individuals and terrorists.

Identified in empirical research, three main themes were abstracted and transferred into a model, where they were placed along the axes of a cube in order to allow the allocation of cases based on these three main themes.

The model is conceptualized as a 3-dimensional (cube) space: (1) Expected benefits from joining; (2) Exit costs; (3) Indistinguishability from others or obscurity to outsiders.
