Witold Ostant

There was first proposed an operational definition of terrorism, including the specificities of the twenty-first century. Subsequently, there were explained the differences between such issues as: terror, terrorism and national-liberation struggle. The attention was also paid to the reasons of the lack of a universal definition of terrorism. There was undertaken to resolve the issue whether terrorism should be seen as a method of action or socio-political phenomenon. Recent theoretical problem became the analysis of the terrorism as a specific global problem. In further there was characterized the history of the formation of responsible community structures in the process of European integration that are responsible for combating of terrorism before and after the formation of the EU.
