Terror in the Twenty First Century – Al Qaeda, ISIS and Their Affiliates

World-wide terrorist activities have had a profound economic, politic, psychological, and social impact. The response to these activities has resulted in calamitous consequences for populations throughout the world. War, destruction of societies, enormous loss of life, personal injury, displacement of people, diversion of resources, and political instability have followed in its wake. This series will attempt, by drawing upon the research and experience of experts, to explain the threats posed by terrorism and consider ways of eliminating its underlying causes.
