Abstract

One of the challenges faced by the Indonesian government lately is the fight against terrorism and the misuse and illegal trade of narcotics. In supporting its objectives, this activity involves a network of transnational crimes that take root and penetrate national borders. This makes the barriers of illegal trade to be meaningless. To ensure national security and public security, the state is present and declares war on terror, equivalent to the fight against narcotics. This research tries to answer the research that has been done by Alex Schmid entitled Links Between Terrorism and Drug Trafficking: A Case of Narco-Terrorism which questioned the weak evidence about the linkage between narcotics in financing support of terrorism. This research is explanative with in-depth interview method, field observation to former terrorist prisoner Fadli Sadama as primary source and supported by secondary data source in the form of literature study as supporting material. This research contains the factors of ideology, geography, social culture and economics as the factors causing narcotterism in Indonesia The theory used in this research is, rational choice theory and routine activity theory. The results show that economic factors are the predominant factor of narcoterrorism in Indonesia and it is evident that the results of narcotics trade are used as support in terrorist activities in Indonesia.
