In this paper we are presenting the results of a scientific research on the changes in the characteristics of terrorism in the information age, relating to the influences of network technologies, results of the information revolution, the paradigm of terrorism. Perceiving the terrorism in a wider context as a conflict, Arquilla, Ronfeldt and Zanini have found two particularly interesting aspects of the influence of the information revolution on its characteristics: one, information revolution is favouring and strengthening network forms of organization, and is at the same time enabling the realization of their comparative advantages over hierarchical forms and two, the conduct and outcome of conflicts will increasingly depend on information and communication technologies.
Exploring the influence on organizational forms, they have formulated a hypothesis on evolution of the hierarchical forms into network forms of organization; chain network, star network and all-channel network, substantiating the evolution of terrorism towards netwar. Netwar refers to an emerging mode of conflict at societal level, in which the protagonists use network forms of organization and related doctrines, strategies and technologies of the information age. The choice of the opus operandi of the netwar by the terrorist organization depends on the doctrinal paradigms that formulate their goals and strategies, which can be defined as the coercive diplomacy paradigm, the war paradigm and the new-world paradigm. The particular problem is that all three paradigms offer room for cybotage with the goal of disruption and destruction of information infrastructure.
Based on the above stated premises we have researched “new” terrorism characteristics at organizational, doctrinal, strategic and technological levels. The study has confirmed the evolution of terrorism towards netwar and the emerging of “new terrorism”, hence the counter terrorism activities will needed to be adapted at the organizational, strategic and technological levels respectively. Given methodology also represents a research model for the terrorism phenomenon which could be applied at a multidisciplinary approach to the antiterrorist activities.
