Lecture by Dr. Chris Harmon, Marine Corps University
Although our age seems plagued by terrorist groups, there have been hundreds of such organizations in decades past, and nearly all of them eventually ceased their practices. How and why? Those questions intrigued the lecturer in 2003—after he had worked on “war termination” in strategy courses for officers at the Naval War College and Marine Corps Command & Staff College. He began lecturing and publishing on the phenomenon, and has carried that work forward, as in a chapter in a McGraw-Hill book he co-edited, Toward A Grand Strategy Against Terrorism (2010). Dr. Harmon will discuss five of the most common ways that important terrorist groups have ended.
