So far, the dominant perspective to understand terrorism is a security-minded perspective. The security-minded perspective in terrorism in various research has implications in how law, imprisonment, and policies are treated against them. However, it could not grasp the nature and internal deep experience of terrorists. There are currently 289 terrorist inmates in 113 correctional institutions throughout Indonesia. Until 2017, more than 60 of former terrorist prisoners repeated their actions. It is arguable that the level of repetition of crimes committed by terrorist inmates is large enough. They are also able to regenerate and reproduce its ideological standpoint. This phenomenon raises a big question: to what extent can de-ideologization be possible? What kind of approach that might suit with this purpose? Security-minded perspective makes research as an instrument for security officers to punish based on two efforts: prevention and deradicalization. Prevention refers to the programs aimed at individuals or groups, that is considered vulnerable to terrorist recruitment. The term counter-radicalization refers to broader public diplomacy that aims to reduce the appeal of terrorist ideologies. Thus deradicalization refers to the need to reduce the level of involvement and calling of a terrorist suspect from the ideology that they adhere to. Our research found that only by disengaging security-minded approach and involving much sociological perspective, we can grasp the nature of terrorist act, and at the last instance contribute to how our socio-legal policy could effectively reduce the ideological reproduction of terrorism.
