Terrorism is a dynamic and puzzling force. Defining it, discussing it and addressing it is increasingly difficult as the world becomes more interconnected, globalised and politically complex. Terrorism in a Globalised World will demystify the causes, history and characteristics of terrorism in an international context.
Through this unit, will you gain a broad understanding of the history of terrorism on a sub-national, national and international level. To achieve this you will be taught the predominant theoretical perspectives of terrorism, and their alternatives.
As analysing and defining terrorism is difficult, so too is identifying practical solutions. This online unit, provided by Open Universities Australia and Murdoch University, critically analyses the current political context and history of counter terrorism measures.
Finally you will learn to analyse the causes of terrorism and evaluate how different forms of thinking can affect the future of terrorism and counter terrorism policy and practice.
