Peter Romaniuk, Multilateral Counter-terrorism: The Global Politics of Cooperation and Contestation (New York: Routledge, 2010).
Contemporary terrorism is a global phenomenon requiring a globalized response. In this book Peter Romaniuk aims to assess to what extent states seek multilateral responses to the threats they face from terrorists. Providing a concise history and a clear discussion of current patterns of counter-terrorist co-operation, this book:
analyses a wide spectrum of institutions from the United Nations and its various bodies to military, intelligence and law enforcement agencies
explains the full range of cooperative counter-terrorist activities and the patterns across them, from the use of intelligence and military force to criminal law measures, financial controls and diplomacy
examines under what conditions states cooperate to suppress terrorism
evaluates how existing international institutions been affected by the US-led “global war on terror,” launched after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
