Resource description

This article examines how the Republic of Cyprus has confronted the threat of international terrorism. Although the threat of terrorism in Cyprus remains relatively low, the Cypriot authorities have nevertheless sought to minimize the risk and maximize the level of preparedness. This has involved taking an uncompromising attitude toward those suspected of involvement with terrorist groups. At the same time, there has been a marked increase in the amount of international co-operation, especially since EU accession, in 2004. Nevertheless, shortcomings remain, particularly in terms of the legislative framework and the development of an analytical counterterrorism capability.
