The Perspectives:Asia seminar – Life as a Weapon: Do suicide bombings really make sense? was held at Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art on 5 November, 2015.  During the seminar, Professor Riaz Hassan AM, Director of the International Centre for Muslim and non-Muslim Understanding, University of South Australia addressed the common perceptions and understandings of suicide bombings and their perpetrators, while examining a cocktail of motivations including political success, liberation of the homeland, personal redemption or honour, refusal to accept subjugation, revenge, anxiety, and defiance.
