Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

By evaluating counter-terrorist approaches a framework in which counter-terrorism has to work in order to be successful is formulated and conclusions regarding international counter-terrorism methods are offered. In that way, and by applying these findings to global patterns of counter-terrorism, further conclusions and ways of action regarding successful international counter-terrorist co-operation are identified. Defining terrorism is important because offers the framework in which counter-terrorism has to work effectively. The analysis of the different theoretical approaches on counter-terrorism patterns has a dual purpose: one the one hand, it will be important in our understanding of combating terrorism. On the other hand, it will apply theory to practice in the sense that it will allow us to evaluate modern counter-terrorism operations. Consequently, conclusions regarding international counter-terrorism methods will be offered.
