The 9/11 terrorist attacks triggered a lot of milestones about terrorism. One of which is the first invocation of article 5 of the Washington treaty that is known as the NATO Alliance's collective defense clause. Since September 11, 2001, NATO has been engaged in counterterrorism efforts. The emerging and developing feature of international and borderless terrorism needs international cooperation to struggle with this threat. NATO has been working with partners around the world such as UN, EU and OSCE. This paper explains how these international entities expend their efforts in countering terrorism.
