Terrorism now has become a world-wide phenomenon. During the last two decades the world has been marked by an increasing number of terrorist attacks. Terrorism occurs when a group, whether holding governmental office, or outside government, resolves to pursue a set of ideological objectives by methods which not only subvert or ignore the requirements of domestic and inter-national law, but which rely for their success primarily upon the threat or use of violence. There are now over one lakh jehadis all over the Islamic world, in Afghanistan, Kashmir, Albania, Chechnaya (Russia), Xin-jiang (China), Central Asia and elsewhere.
Over the years, the United Nations, the regional organisations and different individual countries have formulated a number of laws and conventions, passed resolutions, and framed legislations to combat terrorism. An attempt has been made in this book to bring these laws, conventions, resolutions and legislations at one place.
It is hoped that the book would be found useful by the executives of the world and regional organisations, non-government organisations concerned with world peace and security, government executives and parliamentarians in different countries concerned with tackling terrorism, students of political science and the common man interested in day-to-day world affairs.
