International Terrorism is now the primary security concern worldwide. How has the context and dynamics of international terrorism changed in the last twenty-five years? How have those changes influenced international terrorism operations? How have these changes impacted international coalition counterterrorism operations? How can these changes be leveraged to contain international terrorism? This presentation argues that there have been fundamental and strategic changes within the international scene, principally by globalization, that have effected how international terrorism and counterterrorism now operate. This presentation highlights a number of these critical issues that seriously influence national and international security and particularly counterterrorism efforts. Recommended solutions to these challenges are provided.
