Abstract

The international community is still disturbed at the unprecedented and almost atavistic surge in the use of terror as a method of settling political, economic, and social issues. Scholars in the realms of international law, politics and international relations are frenetic in their quest for a solution to the growing menace of global terrorism. International security suffered serious setbacks with the terror bombings of the US twin towers by the Al Qaeda on September 11, 2001.While the anti-terrorism campaign was just gathering momentum, the London terror attacks of 7th July, 2005 delivered devastating blows to the domain of international security. Since then, the lexicon of terrorism has been brought to the front burner of international studies.
