This chapter finds that the leading countries of the world have started cooperating with the United States in its fight against international terrorism, a new threat which has united Japan, China, and Russia with the United States to initiate counterterrorism measures. India and Pakistan have been able to convince the allies of respective strategic significance in fighting terrorism, and are cooperating with the United States-led coalition despite having distinct ideologies and regional ambitions. Europe has been unable to put up a united front to deal with this transnational threat due to several regional and domestic challenges, whereas Asia has been able to develop a specific strategy to deal with it, as it has suffered extensive destruction and death as a result of terrorism.

Keywords:   international terrorism, counterterrorism, cooperation, ideology, domestic challenges
