In the ‘extreme’ twenty-first century existing security structures, defence systems and security are radically changing. The cause of such changes is the rise and continued evolution of terrorism as a form of politically motivated violence. In this subject, which is a sub-field in the International Relations discipline, terrorism is analysed through an inter-disciplinary lens. This theoretical perspective introduces the student to the relationship between terrorism and war, religion, human security, the state and security. The subject will also provide an overview of the strategies deployed by States and Institutions to combat this lethal form of political activism.
