      objectives and motivations; profiles of terrorists; structure and
      practice of terrorist organizations; terrorist armoury and equipment;
      types of terrorist acts; targets and victims of terrorism;
      -- Protagonists and Geopolitical Areas: A historical-geographical
      approach (Europe, Middle-East, North Africa, the Americas) and a survey
      at the current trends;
      -- Supporters and Criteria of Monitoring: dilemmas of democratic and
      international response; terrorism and diplomacy; the problem of state
      sponsorship and support; problems of international co-operation,
      including the use of diplomacy, international law and organisation;
      -- The Use of Force and Future Threats in Terrorism Worldwide:
      anti-terrorism and counter-terrorism, police and intelligence measures,
      war against terrorism; UN, NATO and Terrorism; rethinking security after
      Sep. 11th; the war on terror and possibly future threats.
