The Roots of Terrorism
This week’s assigned readings have presented various causes for why terrorist events occur. Political, cultural, economic, societal, and religious motivations have all been cited as root causes for terrorist activity. For this assignment, select the motivator (culture, economy, society, or religion) that you think has had the greatest impact on terrorism throughout history. Then address the following:.
- Summarize the reasons why you think this cause has been the most influential in spawning terrorist activity.
- Recommend a course of action to mitigate this cause.
- Extrapolate what the greatest impediments to this course of action are.
- Predict whether the cause you selected will remain the most important throughout the immediate future.
The paper must be at least three pages in length and formatted according to APA style. You must use at least one scholarly resource other than the textbook to support your claims.
