Sem: State Terrorism

This seminar is designed to provide an in-depth examination of certain important aspects of terrorism carried out directly by state security forces and/or indirectly by civilian paramilitary groups operating (wittingly or unwittingly) at the behest of states, and is specifically intended for graduate students who have already taken lecture-oriented undergraduate or graduate courses dealing with terrorism. Special attention will be paid to the covert manipulation of terrorism by states, the extent to which autonomous extremist groups function as their proxies, “death squads,” and “false flag” terrorist operations (real and imagined).
