Abstract

We identify research gaps and recent contributions in the economics of terror. We focus on the human drivers of insecurity as a key topic. Insecurity shapes growth, perceptions of individuals, and policy responses. The economics of security policies remains large under-researched.

Keywords: terrorism, insecurity, security, economics of security
