Abstract: The structure of today’s “international organization” is far from ideal and lacks democratic rules; it has unbalanced relationships, injustice, and inefficiency which strip it of the credibility needed. The existing international organizations do not appear able to adequately protect the interests of everyone. However, the present-day world is moving towards increasing interaction, and international law remains a strong point of reference that the majority of peoples in the world would like to see strengthened. In April 2002, the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI) held a seminar, entitled The New International Terrorism: Prevention Strategies. This book consists of eight papers presented during the seminar focusing on international strategies in the intervention and prevention of terrorism around the world. The papers reflect on various international-terrorist issues and include: (1) International Terrorism, Organized Crime and Illegal Market; (2) Terrorism, International Conventions and Prevention Strategies After the Attacks of September 11, 2001 on the United States; (3) Emergency and Anti-terrorist Powers in Northern Ireland; (4) Links and Convergences Between Terrorism and Organized Crime: Critical Remarks on the Feasibility of a Common Legal Framework; (5) Islamic Fundamentalism and Terrorism; (6) Terrorism: a Political-Military or Intelligence Response to Terrorism; (7) Legislation and Judicial Experience in Preventing Terrorism in Italy; and (8) The European Union and Terrorism After September 11, 2001.
