Chapter 25 – Terrorism, Counterterrorism, and Technology

Peter Lehr


The Handa Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence (CSTPV) at the University of St Andrews in Scotland is the oldest academic research centre for the study of terrorism in Europe. Although inter-disciplinary in its expertise, it has a particular concentration of scholars working upon the history of terrorism. It also hosts the Global History of Terrorism Archive (GHTA): a huge collection of newspaper cuttings on terrorism covering the period from c. 1980 until the early-1990s.


The Combatting Terrorism Center at Westpoint focuses on terrorists’ weaponization of commercially available drones, on encryption technologies used by terrorists, and other topics.


This WEF webpage contains a short discussion of counter-terrorism technologies plus some links to relevant articles.


This Springer Link site leads to the individual chapters of the author’s book on counter-terrorism technologies, which are accessible via most university libraries.
