We face four kinds of terrorist problem. The first is practical and the second analytical and our difficulties in responding to the practical problem have been significantly exacerbated by our failings with regard to the analytical. The third kind of terrorist problem is informational and the fourth perceptual. For many years, data-driven analysis and information regarding the terrorist risk Europe is facing have failed to reach mainstream audiences. At the same time, the considerable counter-terrorism efforts made by both the EU and NATO have gone somewhat unnoticed by the European public. In effect, the threat of terrorism remains a source of much public anxiety. This volume brings together academics and practitioners in an attempt to enrich the dialogue between the two communities and address the analytical and governance challenges we face in the ongoing fight again terrorism.
