About this unit
For professionals working within the police force, field of criminology, or even government policy, this online Perspectives on Security and Terrorism unit is an exceptionally useful and practical way to gain further insight into the forces behind terrorism.
Delivered by Murdoch University through Open Universities Australia, the unit introduces students to the concepts of security, risk and terrorism and examines how the international community has responded to the threat of terrorism.
The unit analyses the complex relationship between terrorism and religion, the media, democracy, and international law; and scrutinises the way in which Australia has dealt with terrorist threats post September 11.
