    Special Issue on Anti-terrorism and International Security


    The type of terrorism and the means of its attack have evolved from a relatively single type in the early stage to the trend of diversification and complexity, and the target of the attack has also evolved from a special object to a common civilian. Attacks range throughout the world, and attack frequency is higher than earlier. With the increasing harmfulness of terrorism, peace and security in the international community have been seriously threatened. International terrorism as the most typical non-traditional security threats, which advocated the logic and behavior, no matter for what purpose, is against humanity and has a profound impact on the transformation of the international system and international order reconstruction. In view of the current international anti-terrorism needs, the study of anti-terrorism theory and its governance have gradually become a hot topic of international political studies.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring anti-terrorism and international security. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Status quo of terrorism
    • Historical causes of terrorism

    • Intelligence and anti-terrorism
    • Terrorism psychology
    • Terrorism and Politics
    • The role of poverty and education in terrorism
    • Impact of terrorism on international security
