Strategies and targets have undergone several changes in this war, but terrorism continues to show no signs of decline. It continues to pose a major security challenge to world order and stability.

    Paris 13/11: What Next?

    To argue that the IS carried out the attacks because it has visceral hatred for Western values is to miss the central point. IS has that hatred, but essentially 13/11 was an act of vengeance against France and others who have been bombing the IS.

    Vivek Chadha replies: The terms “urban” and “hinterland” have both geographical and socio-economic connotations. Urban refers to the towns and cities in any country. Urbanisation is often related to better development, higher income, and politically sensitive areas, which makes them more visible parts of a country. It is also for this reason that the urban centres tend to come up higher in the list of terrorist targets, given the sensational impact terror strikes in such areas could potentially make.
