Terrorism, Global, Landscape, Technology.


Terrorism in recent years has become an interesting topic to discuss. Unfortunately, studies on terrorism are still very minimal. A proper study of terrorism with all its developments that follow the changing times will be able to contribute to solving the problem of terrorism as a whole. The purpose of this study is to find out the relationship between technological developments and the response of the world's views to acts of world terrorism by using the concept of studying world terrorism from time to time. This study uses a qualitative method. The analysis was carried out by interpreting the data based on the literature study. Data were collected from previous reference journals, books, and news from internet sources. This study concludes that technological advances are very influential and are greatly utilized for changing the way of acting from global terrorism. Technological advances, such as the growing and rapid development of internet connectivity, can foster various terrorism content such as invitations to take up arms, bomb-making tutorials, tutorials on how to use weapons, as well as attack tutorials uploaded on various social media and distributed massively, structured and systematically. This study also explains that there are differences in world views and responses to acts of terrorism carried out by different groups.
