Keywords: terrorism; state; sub-national actors

Summary/Abstract: The paper displays the disproportions in the very contents of the notion of terrorism in four aspects: the split of action, the role of terror, the relation to state and the relation to other sub-national actors. That is used to reveal the utilization of the concept “terrorism” within the context of practices of exclusion, disrespect and denigration, which in turn allows for a discussion about the extent of its political acceptability as mechanism of defense.
