Justice in the Face of Terror

Throughout history, society has had to grapple with the critical issues of how to define, construct, and maintain a just society in the face of violence and terror. Students analyze the nature and causes of acts of violence and terror and begin to evaluate the justice of formal and informal societal responses to these acts. Students then consider, debate, and apply these concepts, using specific historical and current examples, and work to synthesize and develop a rigorous framework for just responses to terror and the creation of a new and more just society. Open only to students in the University College Program.
