MCL402 Globalisation and Counterterrorism

DESCRIPTION 

Globalisation poses both opportunities and risks to the economic, cultural, and political spheres of countries which in turn raises civil security issues that require the crafting of counterterrorism policy and practice which is proportionate to the current and emergent threats faced by a democratic society. The aim of the unit is for students to develop a proportionate counterterrorism leadership policy and practice based on a CT Risk Matrix framework of the current and emerging threats posed by the three key dimensions of globalisation - economic, cultural, and political.
