Who should compensate the losses stemming from new forms of terrorism? To what extent and under what conditions can insurers and reinsurers continue to cover this exposure? Could financial markets provide additional capacity? Should governments be called upon to participate in the financial coverage of terrorism risk? Answers to these questions have gradually emerged in OECD countries since the 11 September 2001 attacks and are continuing to take shape.

Several years after these events, and while the renewal of government-backed terrorism compensation schemes is being discussed in some of its member countries, the OECD reviews market evolutions and existing national arrangements to cover terrorism exposures. It also draws attention to several questions and concerns that remain unanswered.

This volume combines OECD policy conclusions with leading academic analysis on a wide scope of issues related to the financial management of terrorism risk. It will allow a better understanding of issues at stake as well as of market and regulatory initiatives to meet the critical financial challenge raised by modern terrorism.
