This chapter discusses a range of issues related to the interface between terrorism and tourism. The discussion examines the impact of terrorism from three perspectives; terrorism as a form of risk, the impact of terrorism on tourist activity and, strategies that the tourism system must adopt to counter the potential of terrorist activity on tourism demand. This approach is based on the view that it is not possible to understand or deal with the threats posed by terrorist activity on the tourism industry in isolation from the impact that terrorism may have on society as a whole. The chapter commences with a brief review of terrorism and problems with definition. While it is argued that the response to events such as the 9/11 attack on the USA have had a significant impact on tourism and on the cost of travel, terrorism as a phenomenon has not significantly altered the demand for travel on a global scale. A principle finding of the chapter is that it is necessary to adopt a systematic approach to dealing with the threat of terrorism commencing with how individual tourists responds to risk, followed by strategies adopted by firms to safeguard their clients, strategies that destinations should adopt to respond to risks including terrorism and the response of governments through policing, the justice system and the penal system.
