COURSE DESCRIPTION (professor Bures' course winter term only): The aim of this one-semester course is to familiarize students with the measures the European Union (EU), the United States (US), the Czech Republic, and other countries and international organizations have taken to combat terrorism after the September 11, 2001 (9/11) attacks on the US. After an overview of the history and the evolving nature of the terrorist threat and possible responses to it, the following topics will be discussed: the origins of EU’s counterterrorism policy and the key pre-9/11 developments in this area; the EU’s Plan of Action that was adopted immediately after 9/11 and has functioned as a road map for all subsequent developments and changes of EU counterterrorism policy; the major legal measures and key institutional innovations that have been adopted in the area of Justice and Home Affairs according to this Plan of Action. We will then explore the US counterterrorism policy and discuss its differences and similarities with the EU counterterrorism measures and approaches. A guest lecturer from the Czech Ministry of Interior will take us through a similar exercise for the Czech counterterrorism policy. In the last session, we will look beyond Europe and US to explore counterterrorism policies of other major states and organizations.

COURSE DESCRIPTION (Aliaksei Kazharski's course, both winter and spring term):
The course covers a broad array of topics that are typically discussed within the discipline of terrorism
studies. These include the problem of defining terrorism, the debate on the concept of “new terrorism”,
the discussion of the so-called “root causes” of terrorism, an overview of existing approaches to fighting
terrorism as well as a critical scrutiny of the discourses and practices of counterterrorism. The course
curriculum presupposes that students will work independently with the required literature and will rely on
it to contribute to regular class discussions and to complete their written assignments.
The aim of the course is to introduce the students to the multifaceted phenomenon of terrorism and the
multidisciplinary field of terrorism studies. It is meant to demonstrate a variety of approaches to
conceptualizing terrorism and to highlight the contested nature of many of the key claims and assumptions
circulating in the epistemic community of counterterrorism professionals, the political establishment and
the broader public. The students should learn to independently evaluate arguments pertaining to the
phenomenon of terrorism and the practices of counterterrorism. This ability should assist them in their
further careers as practitioners or researchers. A secondary objective of the course is to improve the
students’ writing, debating, and presentation skills
