Democratic global governance and safety of our societies understood as a combination of security providers, policies and underlying norms is directly affected by the simultaneous evolution of threats and shifting centers of power. Today, the world remains characterized by instability, conflict, and human suffering, as well as by high levels of strategic uncertainty. On the other, institutions like the United Nations, the African Union, or the European Union itself – as well as non-governmental organizations – have developed a wide range of tools to tackle evolving dangers. In this context, Critical Terrorism Studies emerged in the context of the rapidly intensifying war on terror and political violence. DAKAM's Terrorism Studies aims at a critical perspective at the measures against terrorism while studying the threats to minimize them on an international ground.
