This study uses secondary legal material in the form of official legal materials, books, research results in the form of reports, and opinions from legal experts. Research findings include: 1) legislative policy in combating terrorism crimes is to provide more responsive legal policies to the development of terrorism crimes that ensnare not only perpetrators who commit crimes directly but also investigate parties that collect, provide, or lend funds directly or indirectly with a view to using all or part of it to commit terrorism crimes, terrorist organizations, or terrorists, and 2) the applicative policies in combating terrorism crimes include 3 aspects, namely national preparedness, counter radicalization and deradicalization. This prevention aspect is strengthened by involving all stakeholders and all components of the nation to engage universally in combating terrorism.
