This case study examines variables on why terrorist groups endure with a focus on variables suggested by Audrey Cronin, Seth Jones and Martin Libicki. The study then applies these variables to the Shining Path of Peru. The case looks at why the shining path has endured Peruvian government's efforts to eradicate the group. The variables that have contributed the most to the shining path's endurance are repression and misuse of military force, inadequate policing and intelligence efforts, lack of success and victory by the group, unsuccessful negotiations with the Peruvian government and inability of the group to integrate into the political process.
