Terrorism is a continuing international concern which has particularly plagued the security of Western Europe. This thesis analyzes probable trends in terrorism in the 1990s in this region. The thesis examines the sources of terrorism affecting Western Europe: indigenous and foreign terrorist organizations. Semtex and nuclear materials that could contribute to future terroristic acts are discussed, as well as current nationalist-separatist movement in Western Europe, with particular emphasis on the ETA and FLNC. The potential for terrorism of immigration and the implementation of the Single European Act of 1993 is considered. Finally, the thesis reviews cooperative efforts to combat terrorism within Western Europe. The cooperative effort by European governments to deter and deal with terrorists must be expedited to keep pace with the new challenges that are bound to arise.
