This chapter explores the critical relationship between counter-terrorism (CT) policy and civil society in the United States. First, the chapter details the historical context of the pre-9/11 security environment within the United States and then discusses major security policies that the 9/11 terrorist attacks prompted. This watershed event triggered seismic shifts in security policy aimed at combating international terrorism, and the resulting policy adjustments fundamentally altered civil society within the United States. Second, the chapter analyzes the various security frameworks established in the aftermath of 9/11 and considers their implications on the relations between the state and civil society in the United States. Third, the chapter considers the responses of CSOs to state CT policies. The chapter concludes with an overall assessment of how civil society within the United States changed after 9/11 in response to security policy and a projection of likely future state–civil society relations.
