Sažetak

In this article we have examined the basic thesis about the different ways of countering the issue of modern terrorism by the United States of America and the European Union. Since September 11, 2001, the combat against terrorism has generally been approached in a different manner, using new and different instruments. The most important players in the combat against terrorism on the world stage are the US and the EU and the new, war paradigm of the fight against terrorism was created in America. The European Union is America’s most important partner, but it has chosen different instruments for combating terrorism. Comparative analysis has confirmed beyond a doubt that the type of political system significantly influences counter-terrorist policy making and counter-terrorist activity in general. Analysis has also shown that the US and the EU have rather different systems of social values. The US is fighting a war against terrorism as an existential danger. The European Union does not look at terrorism as an existential threat and counters it in the main through prevention and using civilian instruments. Other than having similar definitions of terrorism and somewhat similar ways of trying to influence the causes of terrorism, the US and the EU, due to numerous explained reasons, differ greatly when it comes to their counter-terrorism approaches, chosen combat models and instruments, and the results achieved in the combat against terrorism. The United States and the European Union are still faced with great problems related to terrorism, which brings into question the efficiency of their strategies.
