POLITICAL ISLAM: TERRORISM NW AFRICA This course will focus on a critical development in the social, political, and cultural evolution of vast areas of North West Africa in recent years with rapid growth of politicized Islam and its outgrowth, religiously inspired violence and terrorism. The course explores this evolution, its origins and socioeconomic root causes, as well as its impact on the societies and states of the region. It also attempts to explain the implications of external powers such as the United States, China, France, Middle Eastern countries, and increasingly, the European Union. [AH, C, HSS]
