The twenty-first century has been characterised by networks. The physical, information, and communication networks which have shaped contemporary society have been adopted and adapted by subnational actors, including terrorists and criminals, to serve their own ends. In this subject, you will explore the illicit networks of terrorists and criminals to comprehend the scale and complexity of the modern threat. You will explore conceptual frameworks and operational terminology, models and influences, and organisational and operational principles. You will be exposed to the real world strengths and weaknesses of illicit networks, and the various tools used to counter illicit networks. Finally, you will assess the strategic logic underlying diverse contemporary counter approaches.
