Terrorism and Counterterrorism

Classified as: POLSCI433 - Terrorism and Counterterrorism (1 Alt. Course Available)
Course Description:

Terrorism has gone from a persistent yet marginal security concern to one of the most important security problems of our day: indeed, there are few countries that do not suffer from some form of terrorism. Though many terrorist attempts fail, some groups wage lengthy and bloody campaigns and, in exceptional cases, kill hundreds or even thousands in pursuit of their ends. Course topics include the nuances involved in defining terrorism, the nature of Al Qaeda, Hamas, and other important groups, the effectiveness of different counterterrorism tools like detention and military force, linkages (or the lack thereof) between terrorism and world religions like Islam, terrorist recruiting, counterterrorism and the rule of law, the political context in South Asia and the Middle East, and emerging issues like cyber-terrorism.
