Master Class in Anti-Terrorism: Challenge of the Minimalist Terrorist- Dealing with the invisible adversary


Terrorism today is not all about big events, large scale attacks, mass casualties, and extensive damage to state, society and normal lives. It is also about relatively low scale planning involving few individuals, with minimum possible preparations, weapons and strategy to send the message of defiance, which may or may not paralyze normal lives, but leaves an enduring impact on the society, personal sense of safety, politics and economy. It is about maintaining anonymity in today’s complex urban environment, till the attack is executed. In a way, terrorists remain amid the law abiding citizens- invisible and inconspicuous- defying the abilities of the state and its agencies to identify and neutralise them.



Participants will learn how terrorism is taking a new shape:

  • by knowing the changing character of terrorism and the reasons for such changes
  • What lies in the minds of a terrorist as he/she prepares to carry out the attack
  • why we fail to identify terrorists before the attack occurs
  • why deaths/ damages in terrorism is more significant than for example in accidents, which probably kills more people everyday
  • Is the lack of awareness about terrorism inhibiting an effective response
  • why is one man’s terrorist another man’s freedom fighter
  • can we fight this threat together
  • what is the role of a common man in fighting terror


  • History and changing character of terrorism
  • Reasons for the subtle change in the nature of terrorism
  • Methods and strategies adopted to key terrorist to maintain low profile
  • Impact of worldwide terrorist movements on minds of individuals
  • Impact of online radicalisation
  • Events and episodes of minimalist terrorist attacks in the world and Southeast Asian countries
  • Experiences of countries to deal with this evolving threat
