The course is five star, but the fact that terrorism does not yet have a global definition make the chance to learn more about it very harder.

While making the case that theory and practice do not much up, more could be said about current practices, both effective, and non-effective.

Fantastic course. Though the message is clear, some statistic numbers are a lot of out date.

It's been an eyeopener for me in many ways.
