ABSTRACT

Progress on a Multinational Policy against Terrorism   [open pdf - 2MB]

"Introductory remarks on the threat of terrorism and key initiatives to combat the threat over the past 20 years provide a starting point to assess answers to three questions fundamental to a coherent multinational policy on counterterrorism. Those questions deal with the effect of public opinion on a government's policy; principles and procedures for action against international terrorism; and the multinational decision-making framework that would best serve those principles and procedures. The analysis centers around the nations best suited to bring pressure against international terrorism--the seven major Western democracies--Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. The concluding chapter suggests that most of the groundwork required for a cohesive and cooperative counterterrorist front now exists between (or at least among) these nations, and the main effort will be to maintain the forward momentum."
