This course unpacks the institutional reproduction of political violence by examining the nexus between international narratives grounded in orthodoxy and the operation of entrenched domestic institutions. It introduces conceptions such as 'national identity' and 'cultural pluralism' and the role these play at critical junctures that compel national change. One such juncture is the imminent repatriation and reintegration of ISIS conscripts on home soil.
