ABSTRACT

This study used semantic network analysis to analyze the scholars, governmental institutes and anti-terrorism laws to establish the concept of terrorism. First, the most frequent key words were commonly “goal”, “violence”, “politics” and “behavior”. The result shows that terrorism accompanies violence to achieve political goals differently from general crimes. Second, the concepts of “terror” and “terrorism” were used commonly. There could be some disputes as there were differences between groups in the aspect of purpose. Third, there were two aspects in the method. There were the same opinions on “violent behavior” in the physical aspect and “menace” and “terror” in the psychological aspect. Fourth, there were two aspects in the damaged ones. There were words like “nation”, “territory” and “government” in the aspect of objects and “individuals”, “lives”, “human beings” and “physical bodies” in the aspect of human beings.
