This subject was previously known as PTR293 Terrorism in a Globalised World.
Since the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001 the spectre of terrorism and resultant ‘War on Terror’ have come to dominate and in many respects reshape national and international politics. The aim of this subject is to provide a critical understanding of terrorism and counter-terrorism politics and policy within the context of a globalised world. Drawing upon both contemporary and historical case studies, the subject considers the complex interrelationships between forces of globalisation, political interest, ideology and violence.
