The 9/11 Legacy: A New Framework for Conceptualizing Terrorism
AbstractThe present study examines the profound impact of the tragic events of September 11, 2001, on the conceptualization of terrorism. This research delves into the implications of 9/11 in redefining the understanding and perception of terror in contemporary society. Through an in-depth analysis of various sources, including scholarly literature, governmental reports, and media discourse, this study sheds light on the transformative effects that the 9/11 attacks had on the conceptual framework of terrorism. The findings highlight the shift in focus from conventional notions of terrorism towards a more comprehensive and multifaceted understanding that encompasses new dimensions and actors. This study contributes to the ongoing discourse on counterterrorism strategies, policy formulation, and international cooperation by examining the evolving nature of terrorism in the post-9/11 era and recommends that an all-comprehensive empirical approach is required to conceptualize the universal phenomenon like terrorism.
