Terrorists represent a dynamic threat due to their ability to learn and innovate methods for strategic violence. These innovations are capable of fundamentally altering the atmosphere of counter terrorism in the Western world. This can be due to technical simplicity, such as September 11, 2001; technological expansion, such as Tokyo 1995; or strategic innovation, such as Munich 1972. This subject uses real world case studies of significant terrorist attacks, and explores the enduring impact they had on counter terrorism policy internationally. You will undertake a structured operations analysis of prominent attacks in order to develop theories regarding future terrorist threats.
