West Europe and North America

Part of the New Security Challenges book series (NSECH)


An analysis of the developed countries in West Europe and North America (Canada and USA) indicates that the relationships in this part of the world are different from the other countries and regions analyzed. The countries that were the least integrated into the global system generally suffered from more terrorism. Any linkages between terrorism and levels of foreign investment appeared to be random. In the case of tourism, more terrorism was counterintuitively linked with higher levels of tourism for most of the time period.
