POL 475 - Terrorism

Credits: 3

The attacks of September 11, 2001 reinforce the value of a strategy long employed by the weak: terrorist violence to intimidate or destabilize a society. This course examines why terrorism is chosen and under which conditions it has succeeded in attaining desired political objectives. It then explores various counter-terrorism methods and how they have succeeded (or not) in stopping/preventing such violence. Students ultimately assess the consequences for conducting world politics in what is described as an era of global terror.
