This subject was previously known as PICX802 Terrorism Issues.
Few security issues define our times more than that of terrorism. This subject provides a solid foundation for terrorism studies, encouraging students to build a thorough understanding of the definitions, origins, and history of terrorism around the world, and considering terrorism as a tactic, as a strategy, and as a mode of communication. Students will explore the wider effects that terrorist discourse plays in contemporary global society, including debates around local, regional and global responses, terrorist overreach, and state overreaction. The subject will also critically examine a series of key themes and questions in terrorism studies such as religion and terrorism, state sponsored terrorism, the future of terrorism, and how academics can best conduct terrorism field research.
