As demonstrated in chapters 3 and 4, terrorism is capable of inflicting widespread personal injury, and unprecedented property and financial damage.1 especially the 9/11 aftermath has led to a worldwide academic and political discussion on how to compensate victims of future terrorist acts.2 the debate concentrates on (a) the availability of (default) private and public compensation schemes, (b) their mutual relationship, and (c) whether government involvement and design of state compensation funds for victims of terrorism is advisable.
