Terrorism and Political Violence

 Committee Chair

Aliya Saeed

Terrorism study has been especially complicated by a lack of universally agreed upon definition of terrorism. This committee is currently examining the intersection of mental health treatment and terrorism, with esp. focus on countering violent extremism (CVE), domestic terrorism, and the ethical considerations in working with law enforcement in the era of war on terror.

Recent published work has focused on the issues of narrative and counter narrative, CVE, the role of mothers in preventing their children's recruitment into terrorism in the west.
