Summary/Abstract: The subject of this article is to suggest that the global international political relations around the world are increasingly burdened by terrorism and all forms of its manifestation. There are many social, political, economic motives which are causing terrorism to become the weapon in the hands of individuals and terrorist groups. There are great numbers of other motives that extend preferential treatment to it. The essence of the conception of the usage of terrorism is not reflected in the classic territorial expansion, but in directly and indirectly covert use of force expressed in long-term and short-term activities by terrorist groups or organizations. The basic causes of terrorism primarily lie in deep and irreconcilable ideological, political and economic contradictions in the world at the beginning of the 21st century. Terrorist acts committed in the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina in the past period point to the undeniable fact that our country is not an exception in the context of a wider terrorist threat. The specific geo-strategic and geographical location, as well as a number of factors largely arising from the circumstances of a recently completed conflict in the former Yugoslavia make up Bosnia and Herzegovina extremely receptive to alltypes of security threats, including terrorism. Local, regional and global developments especially from the aspect of terrorism and extremism had significant influence on the internal security situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The overall conditions in the referred-to forms of security threat were manifested by relatively uniformed tendencies interrupted by periods of stagnation or amplification.
