Terrorism Security and Law
Terrorism is a serious issue in today’s world. It is the use of force, in an illegimate manner and aimed at disturbing the society and community and challenging the governmental authority. Terrorism is the systematic use of terror, often violent, especially as a means of coercion. In the international community, however, terrorism has no legally binding, criminal law definition. Common definitions of terrorism refer only to those violent acts, which are intended to create fear (terror), are perpetrated for a religious, political or, ideological goal; and deliberately target or disregard the safety of civilians. Some definitions now include acts of unlawful violence and war. The word “terrorism” is politically and emotionally charged, and greatly compounds the difficulty of providing a precise definition. Studies have found over 100 definitions of terrorism. The concept of terrorism may itself be controversial, as it is often used by state authorities to delegitimise political or other opponents, and potentially legitimise the state’s own use of armed forces, against opponents. Terrorism has been practised by a broad array of political organisations for furthering their objectives. This study on Terrorism, as a subject, is a bold effort in the direction of comprehending the problem, in a serious manner. This book is a valuable asset for all scholars, researchers, social activists, policy makers, teachers and students, alike.
