Counterterrorism in the 21st Century

Logo of the FBI Counterterrorism Division

Terrorist groups motivated by a radical interpretation of Islam and acting without state sponsorship present a significant security challenge to the United States. In his paper, Designing Institutions to Deal with Terrorism, Martin Feldstein, George F. Baker Professor of Economics, suggests that countering the threat posed by "the new terrorism" will require a restructuring of the United States' counterterrorism (CT) institutions, particularly the FBI, along with greater cooperation with the CT activities of other nations.
