Terrorism. We can’t even…

Possibly the toughest question of our times, terrorist activities have been at the fore of our newspaper headlines in the last couple of months.

To understand what terrorism is, we had a session Moderated by NALSAR students Priyamvadha and Srujana. The questions discussed were:

  1. What is terrorism? What is collective violence?
  2. Who is a terrorist, and what were the criteria at different periods in history and in different regions?
  3. What conditions and agents prompt terrorism?
  4. What are the consequences of terrorist activities?

Needless to say – there are no easy answers. And in fact, easy and simplistic answers are terribly dangerous. Which is why we believe in starting with questions and Baatcheet.
