-Globalization does make it easier for terrorist to act internationally, but it also has two forces that counteract this. The first is by improving the coordination among governments to identify and stop terrorist before they carry out their plans. The second is by increasing the level of education of the worlds population. I have no references to cite but I am fairly sure that better educated people are less likely to be ideological extremists, therefore, fewer terrorists. I think that the overall effect of globalization will ultimately ''reduce'' the amount of international terrorism.
