Failing States in Africa and the Middle East: Terrorist Group Formation and Terrorist Attacks Over Time

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Failed states have been found to both harbor terrorist groups and incite terrorist activities. Not all failed states are equally associated with terrorist activity. This study utilizes four sets of data, obtained from the Start Center’s Global Terrorism Database, the Failed State Index, World Governance Index and the CIA Factbook. The independent variables for this study are a legacy of vengeance seeking groups, control of corruption and past history of colonization. This thesis works to determine the differences in characteristics of state failure that are most associated with terrorist activity in the developing nations of the Middle East and Africa.
