The Charged Spaces we Inhabit - Invisible Violence as the Catalyst for Modern Terrorism and Violent Extremism

This course is a counter discourse that explores the origins, evolution, categorizations and manifestations of visible and invisible violence in modern terrorism and  violent extremism. It probes the extent to which violence is embedded in systems of human thought, beliefs, and mental abstractions which are predicated on universals. These emerge from the pursuit of ideals at a fundamental level and associated with the field of ethics.

Adopting Trinidad and Tobago as a case study, it demonstrates that when ideals become politicized in the marketplace of ideas, they inevitably become nodes of discrepancy and collision, precipitating an array of visible manifestations. The presentation pro-offers views on the ultimate resolution.
