Week 6 Discussion: Chapter 2, Building “Negative Peace” continued.

Dr. Jean-Marc Akakpo

All my apology for skipping the second part of chapter 2 last week. We are circling back to finish them. I am very impatient to read your opinion about responding to Terrorism as although September 11, 2001, marked a pivotal moment for many people in the United States and in other countries, terrorism did not begin or end that day. In fact, the threat of terrorism in the United States has changed since 2001. As matter of fact, 9/11 represents the scariest souvenir of my diplomat life as I was on plane going to Chicago from Washington DC when this happened. I hope you learn great deal of international relations from the readings.
