In a post-9/11 environment, terrorism (in the form of Islamic extremism) has become a household word. However, as we have discussed throughout this module, Islamic extremism is only one of many typologies, each with its own characteristics and challenges for policymakers.
For this short paper, research typologies of terrorism and choose one typology to compare and contrast with the typology of Islamic extremism.
When writing this paper, you should consider the following questions:
- What are some of the similarities between Islamic extremism and other types of terrorism?
- What are some of the major differences between Islamic extremism and other types of terrorism?
