NEGOTIATORS OF KIDNAPPING OR HOSTAGE TAKING

Overview:

Introduction:

In the last four decades, hostage situations have rapidly increased in the world

Due to the threat of terrorism and other social problems. The goals of hostage-takers are

To achieve certain political, criminal, and/or social benefits through hostage situations.
