Description/Abstract

In this ARI the UK's counter-terrorism (CT) response strategies and structures are shown to be dynamic in character, reflecting the experiences from terrorist attacks, evidence from disrupted plots and the recognition of organisational weaknesses. The Paper explains the rationale behind the major organisational change in the remit of the UK's 'lead' CT Ministry, the Home Office, and the renewed emphasis on the need for inter-departmental coordination. It critically analyses the new Prime Minister Gordon Brown's 25 July 'Statement on Security' within the wider context of the response to multi-faceted CT challenges and, more specifically, considers his proposals by reference to an initial analysis of the attempted terrorism-related car bomb attacks (VBIED) in June 2007 in central London and at Glasgow Airport.
