This chapter explores the determinants of terrorism in source and target countries using a dyadic approach akin to the gravity model of empirical international trade. It examines the effects of globalization and governance on the net supply of terrorism across countries and analyzes the bilateral terrorism trade across pairs of countries in order to isolate amongst each pair who is the net importer or exporter of terrorism. The findings reveal that democracy and commercial openness have opposite effects on the source and target state.

Keywords:   terrorism, source countries, target countries, gravity model, globalization, governance, democracy, commercial openness
