Book published by : India Foundation
Terrorism and violent extremism are the results of critical and complex socio-political disorders. While counter-radiacalisation work is vital in minimizing the threat of extremism, the struggle is ultimately ideological. Today, terrorist groups and non-state actors are continually evolving their modes of operation and devising increasingly complex ways to carry out their heinous acts with deadlier consequences. The use of technology, information and social media as well as the nexus between terrorist networks, non-state actors and transnational criminals pose newer challenges to the state operatives and the traditional approaches to terrorism.
This book delves into different aspects of terrorism, as analysed by some of the most experienced global practitioners in the field of counter terrorism. Besides Indian concerns, it analyses terrorism in other parts of the world and its connections with other illegal activities, and suggests remedial measures.
