Terrorism is the use of threat or action planned to effect the government, an government organisation or to threaten the public or a certain sector of the public. Examples of terrorism can be severe violence against a human being, severe damage to a property, a severe risk to one’s health and safety, or a serve threat to someone’s life. International terrorism
International terrorism is when groups form in different countries, like AL Qaida show a threat that has never been experienced before. Al Qaida record threating videos of themselves posting them up onto the internet, sharing their plans which lead to terrifying the public and government of the country they choose to intimidate, carried out and presented by figures like Usamah Bin ladin. This can be a stressful and costly time for a country, as governments will be wanting to do anything to stop the attack from happening. For example recruiting more members of the army to help fight to keep the country safe. These terrorist groups often aim for high impact attacks which lead to high mass civilian casualties. “The threat to the United Kingdom and our interests from international terrorism is substantial”. This shows that there is a high chance for an terrorist attack happening in the United Kingdom, and can happen without any warning. Due to the United Kingdom having an effective governance, we face a less sophisticated terrorist attacks. Al Qaeda is mainly based in Afghanistan and Pakistan, with their partners and followers in other close areas.
The Global Challenges of Comparative Politics
Introduction to Comparative Politics-Studies how different countries both shape and are shaped by the world.
1989,2001, and 2008 define the current era of world politics-describes a particular important moment; critical juncture.
A frequently cited date is 1989, when the Berlin wall was dismantled. 1989 ushered in three important changes.
Marked the end of a bipolar world-marked the emergence of a unipolar world.
Marked the triumph of one model of political and economic development.
1989 was a gateway to globalization.
Globalization provided a new and distinctive lens for analyzing politics within and among countries.
The key question is that whether the global diffusion of investment, trade, production, and electronic communication technologies would promote a worldwide expansion of opportunity and enhance human development.
We have been forced to rethink the meaning of globalization
Since on September 11, 2001, when the Islamic terrorist group led by Osama Bin Laden launched deadly attacks on The World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
The attacks created a new challenge, and produced a tragic and somber critical juncture following the brief post-cold war period.
Many countries have been attacked by terrorist before Sept. 11, 2001, including the U.S. This was different because of the amount of the scale-more than...

...Essay #1 Outline
Essay Question: Define “politics” in your own words relate your definition to that of the classical scholars discussed in class. Which of the three do you prefer and why.
Many people disagree about what the word politics can mean and how it is used in our country. It is often brought up in a negative manor that leads people to believe that politics itself is evil. The problem is, that the majority of our country can’t give a strong definition of what politics is to begin with. But it is something all American citizens should be able to understand, and by doing a little research it can happen. Politics is what decides our future and is the most important aspect of this democracy we have. The following essay discusses what politics is and classical scholar’s definition of politics.
* Define politics and how it applies
* Politics, definition.
* classical scholars definition of politics
* 1) David Easton; He defined politics as the authoritative allocation of values.
* 2) Harold lasswell: He defined politics as who gets what, when and how.
* 3) Han Morgenthau; He defined politics as power struggle.
* which of the classical scholars definition of politics do we prefer.

• Problems with the State-Centric Approach
• Transnational Companies as Political Actors
• Non-Legitimate Groups and Liberation Movements as Political Actors
• Non-Governmental Organizations as Political Actors
• International Organizations as Structures of GlobalPolitics
• Issues and Policy Systems in GlobalPolitics 305
The subject of International Relations originally covered simply the relations between states, for example Britain’s relations with India. Economic bodies and social groups, such as banks, industrial companies, students, environmentalists, and women’s organisations, were given secondary status as non-state actors. This two-tier approach has been challenged, particularly by the effects of globalisation. First, ambiguities in the meaning given to ‘a state’, and its mismatch with the contemporary world, result in it not being a useful concept....
...positively on how we get involved into politics and government. Even though great portion of American population lost their beliefs in political-efficacy, but with Internet it is definitely increasing. Another positive effect of Internet is that it decreases the cost of participation. For example it saves time, because people wouldn’t have to show up on election places physically. With technology government participation is only few clicks away.
So does the Internet have any affects on political participation? Few years ago political scientist Robert Putman argued that citizens are becoming more “lonely bowlers” who no longer interacts socially, and as a consequence no longer willing to take part in political matters (Putman, 2010, FirstMonday). On the other hand Russell J. Dalton argued that what’s happening is not a decline in participations, but a diversification of how individuals in America take part in political involvements (Dalton, 2010, FirstMonday). Before all this technology and Internet only way of participating in government was traditional way. Which is by showing up physically in voting place, and participations would take place within the proper political sphere. But Internet made voting possible for every citizen for those who might be ill and cant leave the house, or for those who is constantly busy. In this case I agree with Russell J. Dalton, because Internet actually helping out individuals with participation in...

Politics is the social structure and methods used to manage a government or state. Just as varying types of economic theories and systems exist, many varying political theories and systems exist as well. The political system in use depends upon the nation-state. A nation is a people with common customs, origin, history, or language. A state, on the other hand, is a political entity with legitimate claim to monopolize use of force through police, military, and so forth. The term nation-state refers to a political entity with the legitimate claim to monopolize use of force over a people with common...
...Criminalisation of politics has become an issue of grave concern among the Indian intelligentsia.
And though the top leaders of all political parties agree that those with criminal record should be
debarred from contesting elections, the number of such people is only increasing. In 2004, about one
in five MPs had a criminal record, including some with charges of heinous crimes such as murder, rape,
dacoity and kidnapping.
Why does it happen?
The most important factor, which determines the ticket distribution, is the "winability" of the candidate.
Hence more and more people with money and muscle power are getting tickets from the political parties.
Another factor that has played an important role is that the criminal elements think that they can escape
punishment by becoming a member of legislative bodies in the states or at the centre.
The negative implications
As goes the old adage – "There ain't no such thing as a free lunch". A person with criminal background
entering politics will demand his pound of flesh from the party in power to which he has extended support.
Apart from seeking protection from the criminal cases going against him, he will also want a share from the
developmental schemes going on in his areas. Thus the government funds meant for the poor go into the pockets
of these people.
Is there a way out?
In a conference organised by the Public Interest Foundation (PIF) on February 19, 2009,...
...Student Politics in Bangladesh
The participation of students in politics is concerned it has been a topic of great disagreement amongst the scholars. The question is whether the students are allowed to take part in politics or not. There are different kinds of opinions. Some people say that the students under no circumstances are permitted to engage in political activities and so ruin their academic career. While others are of the opinion that the students must take active part in the politics so that to receive) necessary training which is required for practical struggle in future. The following schools of thought have their separate view-point regarding the issue.
The standard advanced the issue with the disagreement that politics is the last resort of a scoundrel. It corrupts the student’s mind and degrades his moral character. It creates in him a love for ordinary life and dishonors his noble thought. By diverting his attention towards politics he forgets his actual duty of moral development and intellectual encourage which he is promised as a student. He should therefore be strictly forbidden to be treated in the politics. He should merely concentrate upon his study with full eagerness and affection.
According to the revolutionary school of thought politics is one of the essential and noblest gifts of modern human knowledge. In an independent...
