The terrorist movements in the southern skirts of Central Asia had been focus for a long time among the scholars studying international terrorism. Moreover, September 11 Events and the following US-led military operations in Afghanistan have remarkably deepened global attraction to this area within a short time. Once again, the geo-politics of Central Asia has come to the agenda of world politics concomitantly. Thus, the US-led global war vis-à-vis terrorism has shaped and influenced politics of Central Asia radically. A scientific analysis of terrorism as a global threat to international peace and the search for possible solutions has become vital. We emphasize the relationship between terror and lack of education by focusing our attention on the issue of education among possible solutions to terrorism. In this context, we find the organization of this conference in Bishkek specifically meaningful due to the emerging geo-strategic position of Bishkek following the settlement of the US airbase as well as Bishkek is an important educational center in Central Asia. The objective of the conference is to provide a forum for a scholarly discussion of such a popular issue in Bishkek.
