In many states and their national security strategies, modern terrorism is
marked as one of the main challenges. Aside from that, in many multilateral
security documents terrorism is stated as one of the main challenges to global
security. One can say that present-day terrorism in many aspects affects our
security, as well as our general social and economic development. The understanding
of this phenomenon, its development, its way of functioning, possible
transformations and new forms is the necessary precondition for designing
efficient counter-terrorist strategies. It seems that in the last several years
we have been witnessing a new transformation of terrorism – it is becoming
a threat that will be difficult to defeat with the resources and instruments that
have so far been used in the fight against terrorism.
