From the schoolyards to the far reaches of the earth, terrorism has become one of the largest problems humankind faces in our modern world. Terrorism takes on many forms; psychological bullying, personal insults, abuse of political power, religious intolerance, race and gender slurs. The product of terrorism is fear and hatred and can possibly spin itself into a web of physical violence against individuals, groups and entire nations.

Most of us have dealt with terrorism in some form. Intimidation from peers, teachers, opponents, co-workers, religious leaders has become commonplace. From childhood to adulthood, it leaks into every corner of life, presenting itself in abuse of the elderly, domestic violence, family in-fighting, and political terrorism.

This 1st Global Session on Terrorism is of interest to teachers, students, scholars, psychologists, legal professionals, political activists, historians, and business professionals; it affects everyone at some point in their lives.
