From the anarchists to the islamists: four waves of modern terrorism
Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015 @ 12:15 - 13:00
The lecture will focus on the four waves of modern terrorism from the ‘Anarchist wave’ (late 19th cent) to the ‘Islamic wave’ (post 1979), via the ‘Nationalistic/Anti-colonialist’ wave (post ww2) and the ‘Leftwing wave’ (1960s-70s). Questions such as what victory looks like and how do we know when terrorism is defeated will also be discussed during the lecture.
