Course Objectives Objectives of the course are to enable the students to consider the link between International Relations and Terrorism and develop a realist perspective on this topic.
Course Content The link between International Relations and Terrorism is not a new one. When we remind the definition of politics on the basis of scarce sources, the linkage between International relations and Terrorism can be comprehended better. The reason is that terrorism is used and considered as a cheap foreign policy instrument in each period. The course clarifies this subject matter through touching upon certain theoretical points and some examples of Terrorist organizations.
