Week 3: Resorting to Terrorism
The purpose of this week is to explore questions related to the causes, motivations, and strategic logic of terrorism. Go to the “Course Content” section. After familiarizing yourself with the Overview and Objectives, read the required readings found under “Week 3”. Finally, move to the Discussion Questions below.
For full participation credit, you need to post a comment or answer to at least two questions (250-word minimum each) posed by the instructor (below) and write a substantive reply (150-word minimum) to the comment of at least two classmates. In order to facilitate discussion, the first answer to a question posed by the instructor is required by Friday, and your first substantive reply to a classmate is required by Sunday.
1. What are the three background conditions that positively encourage resistance to the state, and how do these background conditions play into the perception and interpretation of the situation? Provide an example in your response.
2. Why may terrorism endure even if objective circumstances change when, for example, grievances are satisfied, or if the logic of the situation changes when, for example, the terrorists are offered other alternatives for the expression of opposition?
3. Compare and contrast demonstrative, destructive and suicide terrorism. Does the level of coercion sought vary among the different forms? Use historical examples in your response.
4. Why is suicide terrorism more likely to be employed against states with democratic political systems than authoritative governments? How can democracies defend against this threat?
