Globalization and terrorism: an overview

Globalization and terrorism: an overview The world has become a global village. Drastic advances in technology and communication have intensified the ever increasing pace of globalization. This study is an attempt to examine globalization from an evolutional point of view. Furthermore, it evaluates whether or not terrorism is part of globalization. The interrelation between terrorism and globalization is subject to controversies. On one hand, some views assert that terrorism is spreading not because of globalization but because some people are excluded from globalization. On the other hand, certain views claim that globalization may be one of the main causes of the spread of terrorism because it assists terrorist groups to distribute their literature and enforce their views on like-minded people in other parts of the globe. In light of this background, the first section of this work defines the notion of globalization, the second section discusses the characteristic of globalization, the third section explores the history of globalization, the fourth section evaluates the existing controversies and fifth section presents the globalization Islamic view. The sixth section investigates whether or not terrorism is part of globalization, and the seventh section presents the conclusion. Quality & Quantity Springer Journals
