Title: Combating terrorism in the post 9-11 period : a Singapore perspective.
Authors: Chan, Jason Kok Wai.
Keywords: DRNTU::Social sciences::Sociology::Terrorism
Issue Date: 2007
Abstract: Singapore had been confronted with a myriad of security threats in its brief history since its independence in 1965. The emergence of a religious-inspired terrorism in the wake of the 11 September 2001 attacks in the United States and the subsequent discovery of the Jemaah Islamiyah terror network in Singapore have created a radical shift to its security paradigm. In the aftermath of these occurrences, Singapore deployed a comprehensive assortment of counter-terrorism measures in the attempt to insulate itself against any potential risks to its security. These measures were organized along the key aspects of military, civil, social, psychological and economic domains which were adapted from the framework of Total Defence.
