Since the mass casualty attacks by Al Qaeda on the US mainland in September 2001, terrorism has evolved from being seen as a marginal threat on the periphery of the international system to being regarded as a strategic threat to international security. The impact and reach of terrorism has been accentuated by globalisation, and governments worldwide are devoting unprecedented resources and energy to countering the threat. This course focuses on the major attributes of contemporary terrorism, how it has developed throughout history, and the counter-terrorism strategies adopted by governments in response. The course has a strong domestic and international focus and is concerned with evaluating how international trends impact on government policy and the intersection between domestic and international issues surrounding terrorism. Prerequisite: NIL Co-requisite: NIL Incompatible: 3018GIR Violence and Terror in International Relations; 3018IBA Terrorism: Its Causes and Consequences; PAC20 Violence and Terror in International Relations.
