About International Relations (Terrorism and Political Violence) at University of Birmingham

This cutting-edge programme explores the sources and consequences of political violence and terrorism, as well as the crucial ethical questions involved. It should appeal to students interested in careers in foreign services, security, some non-governmental or intergovernmental organisations, and many areas of the private sector.

Issues and topics examined include: The sources and nature of political violence and terrorism, Debates regarding the prevention of terrorism, counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency policy, The politics, legality and ethics of the 'war on terror' and the balance between public security and individual freedom, The circumstances under which armed resistance and revolution can be permissible, Whether democracies can justify or excuse the use of torture in combating terrorism. The aim of the pre-Masters programme is to provide an entry route into our MA/MSc courses in International Development and Relations for students who do not have the traditional requirements for direct entry to the programme.
