In this short concluding chapter of the first part, I bring all the argumentative strands together to then comment on the ‘action-reaction’ pattern that became obvious: terrorists act, counter-terrorists react – and so do politicians and academics. I argue that an array of various solutions has been offered to break through this cycle – amongst them technology as the proverbial ‘silver bullet’.
