ABSTRACT

Preventing Terrorism: Strategies and Policies to Prevent and Combat Transnational Threats   [open pdf - 136KB]

"No single country can address the threat of terrorism alone. Nor can this threat be resolved through military power alone; rather it requires a comprehensive approach including continual exchange of ideas and engagement with the international community. Addressing the challenge of terrorism over the long term demands multilateral cooperation; capacity building; and considered efforts to counter violent extremism by all levels of society and government. The United States has been working hard to reinvigorate alliances and strengthen existing partnerships; this is especially true in the arena of counterterrorism. Through consistent diplomatic engagement, we are seeking to boost the political will and strengthen the resolve of leaders around the world to confront terrorist threats. Ultimately, our success will hinge upon strengthening the ability of others around the world to deal with terrorism in their countries and regions."
