The premise of this second installment on Terrorism (assessment, analysis and action) is that, in order to gain a full grasp of the conditions under which movements that result in wide-scale or substantial political and economic disturbances are able to take root in different parts of the world, it is essential to firstly uncover the social, cultural, behavioral and political forces that shape these regions.

Serena Joseph-Harris continues this fascinating study by exploring the primacy of non-state armed groups; the positive correlation between increasing numbers of such groups and the incidence of armed conflict in all regions of the world; as well as the politically and legally consequential issues surrounding state responsibility for the actions of such groups determined by international courts.
