This chapter introduces the papers presented in this volume and places them in context. It identifies three major themes that run through the chapters. These themes focus on the crime-terror nexus, the need for better coordination among state agencies dealing with counter-terrorism domestically and internationally, and the requirement that each country balance trade-offs between protecting individual civil liberties and guaranteeing the greater security of society overall.
