Abstract / Description

The nexus between “failed states” and “international terrorism” is not as straightforward, as it may look at the first glance. This essay presents arguments that establish strong links, and arguments that cast doubts on the existence of a strong link between the two. It then substantiates the author’s position that although state failure may create a conducive environment for the spread of international terrorism, we cannot establish a cause-and-effect relationship between failed states and international terrorism.
