International Terror Policy

Theory Paper

Total possible points = 15


Write a paper responding to the following prompt:

1. Discuss one theory about the origins of extremism/terrorism. There are many different theories ranging from the individual to the society level, religious to secular, and everything in between. Note that this is
theory but a previously established and researched academic theory that already exists. Use real life examples to discuss both the strengths and weaknesses of this theory.

a. Introducing and explaining the theory should take up no more than one page of your paper.

b. This is a global-focused course therefore your paper should be as well. Your examples should not include the US.

c. The paper must be a balanced one. Do not solely support or discredit the theory.

d. Your evaluation of the theory must be your own. Do not simply parrot existing critiques. Your evaluation needs to be well researched and supported but should consist your own ideas.

Do not include works in your works cited that are not present in the paper. You must APA format for your citations and works cited page. MANY programs will format your citations for you – and we are always happy to introduce you to a few.

  • Is there a possibility of plagiarism in my completed order?

    We complete each paper from scratch, and in order to make you feel safe regarding its authenticity, we check our content for plagiarism before its delivery. To do that, we use our in-house software, which can find not only copy-pasted fragments, but even paraphrased pieces of text. Unlike popular plagiarism-detection systems, which are used by most universities (e.g., we do not report to any public databases—therefore, such checking is safe.

    We provide a plagiarism-free guarantee that ensures your paper is always checked for its uniqueness. Please note that it is possible for a writing company to guarantee an absence of plagiarism against open Internet sources and a number of certain databases, but there is no technology (except for itself) that could guarantee no plagiarism against all sources that are indexed by turnitin. If you want to be 100% sure of your paper’s originality, we suggest you check it using the WriteCheck service from and send us the report.

  • I received some comments from my teacher. Can you help me with them?

    Yes. You can have a free revision during 7 days after you’ve approved the paper. To apply for a free revision, please press the revision request button on your personal order page. You can also apply for another writer to make a revision of your paper, but in such a case, we can ask you for an additional 12 hours, as we might need some time to find another writer to work on your order.

    After the 7-day period, free revisions become unavailable, and we will be able to propose only the paid option of a minor or major revision of your paper. These options are mentioned on your personal order page.

  • How will I receive a completed paper?

    You will get the first version of your paper in a non-editable PDF format within the deadline. You are welcome to check it and inform us if any changes are needed. If everything is okay, and no amendments are necessary, you can approve the order and download the .doc file. If there are any issues you want to change, you can apply for a free revision and the writer will amend the paper according to your instructions. If there happen to be any problems with downloading your paper, please contact our support team.
  • Where do I upload files?

    When you submit your first order, you get a personal account where you can track all your orders, their statuses, your payments, and discounts. Among other options, you will have a possibility to communicate with your writer via a special messenger. You will be able to upload all information and additional materials on your paper using the “Files” tab on your personal page.
