The fight against terrorism is constantly in the news, and NATO has committed to the mission of counterterrorism as a central role of the alliance. This is a mission which requires the maximum cooperation of all NATO members and partners, and the sharing of knowledge and expertise is crucial to its success.
This book presents the proceedings of the NATO Centre of Excellence – Defence against Terrorism (COE-DAT) Advanced Training Course: ‘Capacity Building in the Fight against Terrorism’, held in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan in June 2012. The presentations were delivered by 11 expert practitioners and academics from eight countries. The subjects covered include: an overview of terrorism; NATO's approach to defence against terrorism; weapons of mass destruction terrorism; eco-terrorism; religion and the question of violence; as well as energy and environmental security, international cooperation, human rights, use of the internet, crisis management, finance, recruitment and prejudice perception management as they relate to the fight against terrorism.
This book will be of interest to all those wishing to maintain an awareness of the current situation as regards terrorism and counter terrorism worldwide.
