TOP REVIEWS FROM UNDERSTANDING 9/11: WHY 9/11 HAPPENED & HOW TERRORISM AFFECTS OUR WORLD TODAY
WORDERFUL LEARNING . AMUST COURSE FOR DEFENCE PLANNING AND POLICY MAKING
It is a good course to learn more about terrorism but largely from US perspective and the role of various American agencies. Also, I think the policy memo exercise is not very useful.
Outstanding course and content; the interviews really enriched my learning.
It's an excellent course, with the appropriate rigour and nuances!
