Does Political Globalisation Impede Terrorism? A Regional Perspective

In this modern world, most of the nations are commonly facing the threat of terrorism and these nations work in collaboration, in the form of treaties and international organisations, to counter terrorism. The basic purpose of doing so is to lower the economic, social as well as political costs associated with conducting massive operations against terrorists. Nations which are politically integrated generally assume that their collective efforts might significantly reduce transnational terrorism however it is not necessarily the case. Since some countries have their own hidden objectives, so there is game theory involved in such settings and it cannot be simply concluded that political globalisation impedes terrorism. In this study, we aim to analyse theoretically and test empirically that how political globalisation affects terrorism. This research question is not yet scientifically addressed from a regional perspective. The region of South Asia has a strategic location from regional connectivity perspective and it is also important in terms of political integration in relation to terrorism. In this study, we attempt to answer our research question using regional perspectives in terms of regional connectivity, political integration and terrorism
