Abstract: This thesis examines the nature of the problems that arise in the bid to identify and violently confront human-actors that are termed terrorist. Furthermore, the problems in question stem from the conception of terrorism solely as politically motivated violence. This precludes governmental actors of the state (internal and external) from supposed inimical actions that are termed terrorist. In other words, such conception denies the practice of state and state-sponsored terrorism. The thesis then advocates for a re-conception of terrorism along two lines of terrorism against the state and that against humanity in order to help identify human-actors that are liable to justifiable violent actions / reactions.
