Social Marginalism as a Factor in Terrorism


Using the hypothesis that “Terrorism comes from the SOCIALLY MARGINALIZED”
Therefore the hypothesis is that terrorism may be for political gain but has it’s roots in social marginalization. In the following three cases of terrorism, use this hypothesis to connect them all together.

this final project requires you to investigate the soundness of one terrorism-related assumption or hypothesis when applied to your case studies.

Use three cases, one representing ideological terrorism

1. The Communist Party of India (Maoist),9171,1810169-1,00.html

2. The second representing nationalist terrorism The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Elam in Sri Lanka (Various attacks, their recruitment of female suicide bombers, goals, and their eventual fall)

3. And the third religious terrorism Pakistan’s Lashkar E- Taiba the 2008 Mumbai Attacks to analyze each according to four distinct requirements as outlined below:

  • A. Identify and describe the facts of each case separately, the individuals or groups involved, the perpetrators, declared objectives, the authorities, reaction, and the eventual outcome.
  • B. Apply your understanding of the case studies to analyze the processes leading to each event/case, the circumstances surrounding the ways each event unfolded, and the causes responsible for the subsequent results. If appropriate, distinguish between facts and commonly held myths about these cases.
  • C. Evaluate each of the three cases according to the same one assumption or hypothesis concerning causes of terrorism from the repertoire of theory you have acquired during this course.
  • D. Discuss the usefulness of the selected assumption/hypothesis “That terrorism comes from the socially marginalized” when applied to each of the three cases. Specifically, assess whether or not it is relevant and contributes to the analysis and understanding of each case.

 about 5 pages. Construct the reply by mirroring the format of the question and providing four distinct sections: A, B, C and D.
