Special Issue Information
Terrorism is the intentional use (or threat of use) of violence against civilians or inactive military personnel in order to influence an audience beyond the immediate victims for the purpose of achieving political, ideological, or religious goals. Thus, terrorism is itself a strategy, as is counterterrorism. This engenders a situation of mutual interdependence that lends itself to game-theoretic analysis for the purposes of gaining insight into terror activities and counterterror policies. The same can be said for other forms of conflict, including civil war, genocide, insurgency, and guerilla warfare.
This Special Issue is devoted to contributions that focus on the economics of conflict and terrorism. Applications can be widespread and may include theoretical and applied papers on issues related to counterterrorism, domestic terrorism, transnational terrorism, externalities, terror cycles, alliances, coalitions, value of intelligence, cyberterrorism, signaling, civil wars, refugees, violent manifestations, and organized crime.
