Terrorist movements

What social and political conditions and events tend to shape the onset of social revolutionary or nationalist-separatist terrorism? Why do people join terrorist movements? And, what should be done by governments to reduce or contain terrorist threats?

You should discuss at least two specific examples of terrorist movements when answering these questions, and base your analysis on course readings.
