Prevention of Terrorism in the North Caucasus

Adiyev A., Musayeva А.


The article reflects the experience of recent years in the field of terrorism prevention in the republics of the North Caucasus, where today there is a significant decline in terrorist activity. Based on the analysis of the research data, it is argued that the success of the state in preventing terrorism is due to an increase in the quality of interdepartmental and inter-level interaction of all subjects of countering terrorism, focusing on targeted work with categories of persons most exposed to the ideology of terrorism and extremism, as well as the involvement of broad public circles in this activity. The article also describes some problems in the approaches and organization of measures to prevent terrorism in a number of republics of the North Caucasus, and suggests for testing those solutions that are successfully practiced in individual municipalities and regions.
