This paper assesses the numerous international initiatives to enhance aviation security post 9/11, as well as maritime security and surface transport security.
Since the attacks on Lockerbie and the United States in September 2001, there has been a growing awareness of the risk to aviation and other forms of transportation from terrorism. Governments have responded to attacks on the transportation industry by passing numerous legislation and international conventions seeking to deter and prevent any future terrorist action/tragedies. Through an analysis of legislation and conventions, action falls into two categories: (1) pre-incident preparedness and (2) response and recovery. By utilizing these actions, governments will be able to tackle terrorism incidents. This paper explores the expanding range of regulatory initiatives that have emerged in aviation, maritime and other forms of transport since the attacks on the United States in September 2001.
