Magazine Description

In this issue

The past 10 years has seen more terror attacks on the rise. These threats continue to plague not only western countries, but also continue to instil fear and division among the people in our region, like Singapore. These threats are constant reminders for us that we should never take our peace and security for granted. While the theory of deterrence continues to be an effective strategy against conventional threats, the author explores whether this theory is still relevant amidst the on-going threat of terrorism. This is especially so in Singapore’s situation, taking into consideration her position as a multi-cultural nation with strong economic links to global trade. In this essay, the author argues that deterrence theory and deterrence strategies can indeed be applied to terrorist organisations, and that Singapore can and should apply these strategies in its counter-terrorism efforts.
