Terrorism & Security
Seek to better understand why terrorism occurs, how terrorists organize and operate, and what some of the consequences are of reacting in different ways to terrorism.

It is both relevant and important to study terrorism from a European perspective, as several European countries have a very long and unfortunate history of dealing with terrorism such as Northern Ireland and the IRA, Spain and the ETA, Italy and the Red Brigades, Germany and the Red Army Faction, and Russia and The People’s Will and The Black Widows.

CORE COURSE 

Terrorism and Counter-Terrorism from a European Perspective
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits 
Terrorism and counter-terrorism have been on everyone’s mind since 9/11. However, terrorism didn’t just appear out of the blue on that horrifying September day. This course is a study of terrorism – its causes, aims, and forms – and of counter-terrorism measures introduced by the international community and individual states. The course examines the implications of terrorism for international politics in the 21st century. In order to be able to better understand the concept and phenomenon of terrorism and the attempts to fight it, we look at some of the many terrorist attacks and attempts to deal with terrorism from a European perspective. It is both relevant and important to study terrorism from a European perspective, because (unfortunately) several European countries have a very long history of dealing with terrorism (e.g. Northern Ireland (IRA), Spain (ETA), Italy (Red Brigades), Germany (Red Army Faction), Russia (The People’s Will and The Black Widows). This perspective will allow us to better understand why terrorism occurs, how terrorists organize and operate, and what some of the consequences are of reacting in different ways to terrorism.
