Terrorism did not begin with 26/11 or even 9/11. However, the massive investments made by different countries for its eradication seem to have yielded only sub-optimal results. From Paris to Pathankot, acts of terror continue to cause havoc throughout the world.  Diverse groups like The Boko Haram compete with those like the Lashkar-e-Taiba in causing mayhem.
 
The rise of the Islamic State presents a unique case of a proto-state established and run by a terrorist organisation, which combines public brutality with revenue generation activities to emerge as the face of global terror today. The seminar is an endeavour to help in a better understanding of the phenomenon of terrorism and the way forward.
