State Terrorism - A Thing of the Past?

Schapiro public lecture


State terrorism has been linked to totalitarianism but has not disappeared with it. Reviewing the major episodes of state terrorism Professor Schmid identifies torture, disappearances, extrajudicial executions, death squads and concentration camps as main instruments of state terrorism and reviews their status in the post-Cold War period.

Professor Alex Schmid is Director of the Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence at University of St. Andrews. Prior to his appointment to St Andrews, Professor Schmid served as Officer-in-Charge of the United Nations’ Terrorism Prevention Branch in Vienna, where, from 1999 to 2005, he held the position of a Senior Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice Officer. Before joining the United Nations, he held the Synthesis Chair on Conflict Resolution at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam. He also taught International Relations at the Department of Political Sciences of Leiden University where he acted as Research Coordinator of the Interdisciplinary Research Programme on Causes of Human Rights Violations.
