From the Paper:

"Every government each has their own problems to deal with, whether they are corruption, gangs, or overall crime. For the governments of the United Kingdom and Spain, these problems include having to deal with their own unusual variety of terrorist organizations. The United Kingdom has long struggled to control the Irish Republican Army (IRA), while Spain has been greatly affected by their own form of violent and dangerous separatists known as the ETA (Euskadi Ta Askatasuna). Each of these governments has implemented political and legal strategies to discourage the violent activity of these organizations and keep their citizens safe from local strife."
