Terrorism in no longer confined to a territory or to a few isolated activities, rather it has surpassed all barriers and gained an international description. To check the menace and protect the innocent population various regional and global conventions have been ratified. However the roots of terrorism seems to be all the more penetrating into the heart of the civilization and is emerging to be the greatest threat to peaceful co-existence. The criminal record sharing model developed by the EU-US, principle of universal jurisdiction and the exercise of extraterritorial jurisdiction has in the recent past been thrown open for debates by policy makers. The international community is trying its level best to strike the chord of harmony between the various elements to maintain peace & prosperity. Perhaps it’s the blend of all the counter measures coupled with identification and prevention of causes that lead to terrorism, is the need of the hour.
