The Future Face of Terrorism

The Future Face of Terrorism

  • 15 April 1996

The lecture discussed the future of terrorism, taking
into consideration that the world has over twentyfive
years experience in international terrorism. Since
1968, analysts have collected data on the phenomenon
and, although they differ somewhat, they agree on the
general future trends for terrorism.
First, “super terrorism” or the use of WMD poses
a tremendous threat in the increasing vulnerable
state system. Second, it may also produce other
forms of ethnic, nationalistic and anarchic terrorism
to which the Middle East will remain vulnerable
for the foreseeable future. Terrorism may also mix
with other global threats, especially drug-trafficking
and organized crime. Combating this requires
international cooperation and the strengthening of
existing mechanisms.
