International Criminal Justice.
In our ICJ module we are required to do a presentation in each seminar on the week's topic area. Our presentation would usually consist of one of:
- literature review
- case review
- current issues
For our final seminar we had to give a presentation on one of the following topics:
My presentation was on terrorism and I mainly looked at the literature on this area, with the odd case and current issues included. My primary focus was on the definition of terrorism as I couldn't find a universally accepted definition and looked at the problems this caused. The battle against terrorism is difficult enough, hampered by the absence of a definition. I examine the reasons as to why there isn't a definition, the difficulties in establishing one, the effect of establishing one, and therefore answering the question whether a definition of terrorism is actually needed.
