This article discusses the increased focus on counterterrorism and terrorism since the attacks of September 11. The attacks drove terrorism to prominence in foreign and security and international relations policy. Terrorism is a major security concern, nationally and internationally. Since the occurrence of the incidences, scholars have increased interest in researching terrorism effects. Also, there is funding for the researches and literature, counterterrorism, and media attention to determine the foreign actors, threats, and sources pertaining to terrorism. The attacks helped change people’s perception of the world, and they increased counterterrorism practices among nations.

This article will be essential when exploring the importance of counterterrorism in a community. This article explores the idea that in religiously and geographically defined communities, non-state actors have a role in ensuring counterterrorism. This is by responding to the increasing efforts of terrorists to conduct malicious behaviors in North America and Europe. Ultimately, community-led counterterrorism may utilize ethical anchoring and ideological competition causal channels. However, the existing counterterrorism does not harness the mechanisms, and therefore it undermines them. The safest way is having community-led counterterrorism since it can easily present untapped opportunities when fighting terrorism. Despite all, various minority communities such as the Muslims in the West, alongside liberal democracies, may ethically question it.

This article explores counterterrorism and terrorism as always challenging subjects. Both from the past century have lurked on scientific research fringes. Their interest in the subject led to incorporation into the curriculum, and everyone was aware of the topics. The definition of the impact of terrorism in the past years led to the establishment of critical studies on terrorism. However, researchers have been using ineffective methods to explore them and have not been concerned with studying terrorism fully. This work will assist in understanding the essential key concepts that will make the overall research study easier.

The chapter discusses the various international, and regional association approaches utilized when addressing counterterrorism in broad. The strategy incorporates documents that must be adopted to ensure uniformity in terrorist organizations always ahead of law-enforcing agencies. Some countries have used response teams who utilize computer security incidences to necessitate counterterrorism. Although this may fight terrorism, there may be a workforce shortage, and this work will be paramount in my research study when understanding future challenges that may challenge counterterrorism and the good recommendations to control them from occurring.

This research paper explores the effects of counterterrorism regulations on the population of suspects for the past few years. The researchers focus on pre-emptive policies impacts and highlight the shift from universal towards partial security pledges by the State. The work further examines the shift’s consequences for the people outside the boundaries of eligible safety. The researchers suggest a conceptual device palette that necessitates criminological critique. This work will be useful when understanding the regulations on terrorists, punishment, and policies that each must follow when caught.

American security cooperation has undergone massive evolution and expansion for the past years, although this is overlooked in counterterrorism literature. The article presents a region that can be essential when exploring the constitute effects of the cooperation, alongside evolution following pursuing a mission of economy of force by the US. The work focuses on the US effects in the Sahel when providing indirect military interventions following the occurrence of the 9/11 attacks. By utilizing this work, it will be easier to learn how the US intervenes with neighboring countries when counterterrorism. This will be essential when learning the different countries’ strategies to ensure counterterrorism.
