Dr. Alexey D Muraviev, Head of Department, Faculty of Humanities, School of Media, Culture and Creative Arts, Bentley Campus, Australia in his analysis during the sub topic ‘Impact on Global Governance’ under the Session 2 main topic ‘Countering Violent Extremism’ explained the distinction between offensive counter terrorism and the defensive counter terrorism with special focus on operational and strategic challenges.
