Zusammenfassung:On September 11th, 2001 the world changed when the USA were attacked by Islamist terrorists who killed more than 3000 people and destroyed several symbols of US-American power. These events demonstrated how substantive the threat of Islamist terrorism really was, consequently causing fear and terror among millions of people in the Western World. A decade later, also due to repeated terror attacks and attempts around the world, this perception of threat is still present. My dissertation therefore deals with the consequences of this perceived terrorist threat; two studies focus on consequences for Muslims in the Western World while another study analyzes the effect on political ideologies of individuals.
