Terrorism Dynamics - PICX837

This unit explores the social construction of terrorism and violent extremism through a consideration of supporting dynamics including ideology, forms of communication, financing, criminal networks, and logistics. Contemporary and evolving case studies will provide students with the opportunity to explore the consequences of these dynamics on the development, evolution and dissolution of terrorist organisations and violent extremists. Consideration of how these dynamics relate to counterterrorism operations will also be made. The unit compliments and builds upon both PICX802 and PICX818.
