      TERRORISM, GLOBALIZATION, AND THE FORCES
            OF  (DIS)   ORDER IN THE ISLAMIC WORLD*







    Introduction

    We  live in a troubled and tumultuous era. September 11 and its aftermath, the
financial meltdown of 2008 and its aftermath, have littered the landscape with new
obstacles that must be identified and surmounted. As  of this writing, the events
in Central Asia and the Middle East are cause for the devil himself to dance. The
catastrophic impacts of global warming and of general environmental degradation
seem  to be on our doorstep, and it does appear as if the world may be heading into
a depression, measured both in spirit and in hard currency. Achieving success and
security, peace and justice in life remains a great challenge, and the bar has been
raised of late due to recent events that are seemingly careening out of control. While
the basic principles of progress and success remain  the same, their operational
application now needs to be adjusted so as to properly respond to the unique dynamics
of the new and ever changing social, political, and economic environments in which
we  function. The valiant among us remain undaunted  by the new  challenges and
move  forward relentlessly, implacably, perseveringly and unyielding in heart and in
mind. This trek of discipline carries a hefty tuition but offers much to those who pay
the price.

    This paper seeks to outline a series of inter-related socio-political, economic
factors and forces, catalysts and causes if you will, that are impacting the state
of order and disorder in our world, and suggests a course of action that we must
undertake to mitigate the turmoil that is swirling around us all.

     reaction on terrorism in the era of globalization at the Faculty of Law University of Bialystok on 15-16 March 2009.
