Subtheme
Terror
105715 views | 19 comments
Terror: it is the word defining global debate, the object of billions of dollars of government spending.

But how do we define the term ‘terror’ for ourselves? How do we experience it in our own lives? Most importantly, how do we contribute to a world in which terror and fear are not the driving forces of global politics?

Sonia Faleiro writes about how India’s Muslims were treated after the blasts in Bombay. Lisa Ling’s provocative video looks at why women participate in suicide bombing. The pieces in this subtheme are not easy to digest—but they do give us thoughtful perspectives on the subject of terror that can lead us to more constructive solutions.
