Talking with terrorists: Negotiating as a viable option for counterterrorism
LE3 .A278 2009
Bachelor of Arts
Negotiating with Terrorism is considered highly controversial. This thesis investigates reasons for this controversy, while establishing explanations for how negotiating with terrorism has been undertaken in the past, and how negotiation may be undertaken with present day emergences of terrorism. Evidence is provided which supports the logic of negotiating with terrorists, while critiquing theoretical models of negotiation. By establishing an understanding of what is considered new terrorism, and the different requirements for negotiating with it, we may establish new models of negotiation.
