This subject introduces you to the ‘extreme’ and radically changing twenty-first century existing security structures, defence systems and security. You will learn about the rise and continued evolution of terrorism as a form of politically motivated violence. Terrorism, a sub-field of the International Relations discipline, is analysed through an inter-disciplinary lens. This theoretical perspective introduces you to the relationship between terrorism and war, religion, human security, the state and security. You will also explore the strategies deployed by States and Institutions to combat this lethal form of political activism.
