Abstract

After the Cold War, the risk of a military conflict on a global scale has been significantly reduced. However, the world is still confronted with many traditional and new challenges, risks and threats to security. The increasingly unpredictable, asymmetric and trans-national character is an essential feature of these challenges, risks and threats. The subject of this research is the identification, definition and analysis of terrorism as one of the largest transnational security threats. The purpose of this paper is to approach the meaning of terrorism and bring it close to the professional and scientific community. One of the goals of the security, political and legal studies is to determine the structure, content and reasons underlying the conduct of terrorist acts. Terrorism is essentially a historical phenomenon that is as old as the state itself, although it is often seen as a phenomenon of contemporary human security. However, the current forms of terrorism have a completely new dimension arising from different historical, socio-economic and political reasons, as well as the development of science and technology. There is still no generally accepted and universal definition of terrorism, considering the fact that terrorism is not easy to define. Terrorism has many forms and it is characterized by a variability of its features, in addition to being complex. The meaning of the word „terrorism― has changed throughout history in order to accommodate the risk of any subsequent period. Hence, it is difficult to determine a permanent definition of the term.In a growing number of countries there is an increasing political priority to solve this problem and it must be assessed primarily or exclusively in terms of national security and the protection of national interests. Moreover, the interests and values of human and international security must not be neglected. In this paper, the author will present a terminological definition of contemporary terrorism, its features, characteristics, manifestations and the complexity in the forms of its manifestation and volatility. Keywords: contemporary challenges, terrorism, violence
