This paper examines the importance and role that civil society plays in its involvement in responding to terrorism. Strengthening its response against the threat of terrorism in a long-lasting and effective way is the key issue addressed in this paper. As such, a systematic understanding should be developed that points out potential limitations that a civil society may face in its efforts to provide an effective means through involvement in the fight against terrorism. The author performs structural analyses of three key actors: state, civil society and terrorist groups. In addition, the various ways and means in which civil societies can be mobilized to counter terrorism is demonstrated by outlining practical strategies that can be implemented across the globe.
