Abstract

The mobilization of a society against terrorism inevitably affects the laws of that society. This entry will examine the potential strategic approaches, the principles and policies affecting those strategies, and a number of recurrent specific measures that commonly appear in the counter-terrorism codes of many states. The focus is mainly on national laws, but international law, which is becoming increasingly prominent, will also be discussed.
