Part of the New Security Challenges book series (NSECH)


This chapter focuses on the databases that are used in the volume including the Global Terrorism Database which will serve as the source for materials on terrorist incidents and casualties. The measures on globalization will be drawn from materials published by the Swiss Institute of Technology, which include measures of economic, social, and political globalization. Materials on tourism and foreign investment are drawn from UN sources such as theStatistical Yearbooks. The primary methodology will not only rely on basic correlations to test the two hypotheses but also include the use of lagged effects in case the influences took some time to have an impact.
