The paper discusses how a terrorism policy is contingent upon the definition of terrorism prevalent at a given time and looks at the terrorism policies of the past. The paper discusses the serious implications for how we define the word terrorism. The paper also explains that, used too broadly, the definition can limit the ability of legitimate guerrilla organizations to fight oppressive regimes, but used too restrictively, it can make a nation vulnerable to unforeseen attacks.
From the Paper:"The issue of global terrorism has become a major public concern in the past decade or so and particularly since the attacks of September 11, 2001. It is a natural response to terrorist attacks and activity that governments and lawmakers will attempt to formulate policies to deal with the problem. It seems logical to conclude that without clear and consistent sets of policies and procedures to deal with such a multi-faceted and complex problem, it will not be possible to effectively combat it or fight it on almost any coherent level."
