Sub-Saharan Africa

Part of the New Security Challenges book series (NSECH)


This chapter includes analyses for the countries of sub-Saharan Africa. Globalization is linked with higher levels of terrorism in the years in the 1970s and 1980s. In later years, the linkages were more limited and indicated that countries less integrated with the outside world were more vulnerable. The terrorism levels had virtually no effects on foreign investors, and there were only a few indications of any negative effects on tourism.
