Abstract:

The Korean people are exposed to diverse threats from terrorist organizations at home and abroad despite the governments recently increased efforts to cope with terrorist threats. The 911 attacks were an important turning point in terrorism and raised questions concerning the effectiveness of anti-terrorism programs to prevent terrorist attacks. As a result of these attacks, the US and the UK undertook great preventive measures in the field of the legal framework, organization, and leadership. Given that these two countries are now the targets of various terrorist organizations both domestically and abroad, Korea can learn lessons from both countries. Improving anti-terrorism programs could potentially provide Koreans with safety and establish conditions for better stability in the world. Accordingly, the findings of this study include recommendations regarding whats required to improve Korean anti-terrorism programs and efforts.
