This thesis hypothesizes that it is possible and practical to apply informationdominance as an affirmative countermeasure against terrorism by non-state actors inmuch the same manner that states use information superiority in the conduct of international politics and economics. The issue that it addresses is whether or not there issufficient foundational information relating to terrorism, information science,international law and information warfare to develop a generalized meta-framework forapplying concepts of information dominance in a counter-terrorism context much as theseprinciples are applied in modern state-on-state warfare.The thesis examines all of these foundational areas and applies the findings to thedevelopment of an information dominance meta-framework, or a “framework of frameworks” applied specifically to the problem of counter-terrorism. The authorconcludes that such a meta-framework is both feasible and practical. As a starting pointfor further research (outside the scope of this thesis), the author proposes such a meta-framework based upon established work of other researchers.The meta-framework (The Counter-Terrorism Information DominanceFramework, or “CTIDF”), is constructed based upon information, techniques andtechnologies that are well established in their various fields. Simply put, the CTIDF is acomprehensive, interdisciplinary, holistic approach to the application of elements of information conflict to the problem of counter-terrorism.
