Terrorism and Political Violence.

This module will equip you with a deep understanding of a range of approaches to the study of political violence, as well as a detailed knowledge of key historical and contemporary cases. You will be encouraged to think critically about the ways in which political violence is conceptualised and identified, and to do so, we will consider its manifestation across a seemingly diverse settings. These range from the macro level of warfare, terrorism and genocide through to the micro-level of spaces that are usually considered as private or intimate, such as within the home or at places of worship.
