CMR 536 - Terrorism and Counterterrorism Credits: 3
The threat of terrorism is pervasive in most countries around the world. The source of terrorism is important to understanding the different tools states can employ to counter the problem. This course will look at research on the causes of terrorism exploring the operational environment of states where terrorism is common. In addition to causation, this course will also explore counterterrorism methods. Counterterrorism will look at all methods individually and then turn to focus on complimentary counterterrorism strategies that elevate alternative opportunities of political engagement to encourage individuals to substitute terrorist behaviour with other forms of political engagement.
