POLS 3711 - Terrorism: Challenges to Stability and Diplomacy

Arts & Sciences
Since 9-11, the study of terrorism has become increasingly important, particularly for those who plan to engage in business internationally or for those with supply chains overseas which could be impacted by terrorism either directly or indirectly. This course will help the student understand the root causes of terrorism and uncover its psychological and historical underpinnings. We will seek to understand how terrorism impacts local and global economies and presents challenges to diplomacy between nations, as well as look for possible security solutions. This is absolutely vital from a business perspective. If one keeps up with news happening along their supply chain, they can see and potentially predict problems before they arise and prepare their work accordingly. We will look at not only terrorism in context of the Middle East, but globally, to include domestic terrorism in the United States. Quantitative and qualitative research methods, analysis, as well as key concepts in the field will be discussed, including identity, ideology, human rights, and race. Scholarly works at the nexus of terrorism and business are included to highlight concepts related to the future of business security.
