In addition, in the issue you will find articles on the legal aspects of the hijacking of a Polish plane in Belarus (flight no. FR 4978) in May 2021, the legal perspective of securing special conferences, events, celebrations and other events from terrorist activity, the correlation between psychoactive substance abuse and the process of radicalisation to terrorism, the determinants of the secret relations of the Soviet bloc secret services with international terrorists during the Cold War, as well as the second part of the case study of the perpetrator of the terrorist attacks on the Norwegian island of Utøya.(…)”

The issue includes also a review of a newly published book by Prof. Gilles Kepel “Chaos und Covid. Wie die Pandemie Nordafrika und den Nahen Osten verändert” where the French expert explains the development stages of jihadism and the innovative theory of „jihadism of atmosphere“.  The review was written by Dr Maniszewska.
