International trade, security, and transnational terrorism: theory and empirics

Daniel Mirza () and Thierry Verdier ()

No 4093, Policy Research Working Paper Series from The World Bank

Abstract: The authors offer a general analytical framework illustrating the complex two-way interactions between trade and transnational terrorism. Then they survey the recent economic literature in light of this framework by pointing to the importance in empirical studies of (1) controlling appropriately for theses interactions, (2) distinguishing between"source"countries and"target"countries of terrorism, and (3) taking into account the intertemporal persistence of terrorism between specific pairs of countries.
