Since September 11 2001 an implicit assumption posits the emergence of terrorism as a new phenomenon, whereas terrorism is certainly not a new challenge with which liberal democracies are confronted. This rhetorical assertion has justified the adoption of draconian measures at the national, regional and international level. This talk provides an overview of the provisional findings of my research. It discusses whether and how a country (i.e. the UK, France and Italy) confronted by a terrorist threat, can learn valuable lessons from both its past and foreign experiences, in order to extrapolate usefully into the future and develop a coherent counter-terrorist policy accordingly, in the light of human rights standards.
