Abstract: This thesis will provide a thorough examination of counterterrorism in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and the United States. A multifaceted analysis of Jordan’s counterterrorism (the socio-economic and political drivers of terrorism, historical efforts of counterterrorism, and its contemporary successes and failures) will be complimented by a generalized report of United States counterterrorism. The successes of Jordanian counterterrorism were analyzed to reveal whether or not certain practices could be implemented in America. While considering the political, social, and cultural differences between the two countries, it was clear that the two allies understandably operate on a similar agenda when it comes to fighting the war on terror. However, Jordan has a unique approach to easing the threat of violent extremism that could potentially benefit the United States.
