Authors: Sigurour Orn Eyjolfsson

Issue Date: 2014
Abstract: This paper argues that Iceland should adopt a counter terrorism strategy similar to that of the European Union Strategy of 2007. In addition to this, Iceland needs to strengthen domestic intelligence gathering while maintaining strong partnership with allies in both Europe and North America. The question that this paper attempts to answer is what counter terrorism measures does Iceland need to take to minimize the risk of a terrorist attack? The paper will analyse why Iceland matters in the global context of terrorism, the current terrorist threats that Iceland faces and the counter terrorism measures that Iceland can adopt. The paper analyses changes that Iceland needs to integrate within its current counter terrorism strategy as the terrorist threat becomes increasingly global. The various changes were identified through assessing why Iceland matters when discussing terrorism, the various threats that Iceland faces and the policies that Iceland need to follow to combat terrorism.
