The paper defines the terrorist acts as a combination of factors that have a negative impact on the economic, social and natural environment of society. The UNWTO is a hub for these joint activities to organize tourism security. The distinguishing and novel feature of the organization is that, whilst most organizations provide international security for people permanently residing in a certain territory, the UNWTO interacts exclusively with relocated persons. The work undertaken by the UNWTO specifies that the threat in the tourism industry has a character of mutual exclusion in the aspect of presenting political claims as the causes of terrorism and reducing economic and social indicators as consequences of the activities of terrorist groups.

Keywords : International Tourism, International Terrorism, International Law, UNWTO.
