Andrew Zammit on sensible ways to think about terrorism

Is there a way to think about terrorism without politics? Do counter-terrorism responses make us safer? What are sensible ways to sift through news reports about acts of terror?

Andrew Zammit takes us through these and other questions. He is a PhD candidate at the University of Melbourne and has worked on terrorism-related research projects at Monash University and Victoria University.

He sets out the history of terrorism in Australia, and how injustice is embedded in both terrorism and responses to it. He also considers elements of the recently announced Home Affairs portfolio, which brings together several national security agencies under a single minister.
