Background and context

Globalization is a phenomena that has spread rapidly over past decades, particularly in the 1990s and in the 21st century. It entails an increase in trade and capitalism internationally. While this may have great benefits, many are concerned that it is the cause of generating significant discontent in many regions of the world. In the Middle East, concerns have been raised that globalization's discontents are turning to terrorism.

Education: Does globalization increase education and does this cut terrorism?

Pro

  • Globalization may help education, but this does not cut terrorism. "Education, Poverty and Terrorism: Is There a Causal Connection?", Journal of Economic Perspectives. Fall 2003: "our review of the evidence provides little reason for optimism that a reduction in poverty or an increase in educational attainment would meaningfully reduce international terrorism. Any connection between poverty, education and terrorism is indirect, complicated and probably quite weak. Instead of viewing terrorism as a direct response to low market opportunities or ignorance, we suggest it is more accurately viewed as a response to political conditions and long-standing feelings of indignity and frustration that have little to do with economics."

Con

  • Globalization increases education, helps fight terrorism. Better educated people are less likely to be ideological extremists. In so far as globalization improves education, it reduces the risk that individuals will become radical and then become terrorists. I think that the overall effect of globalization will ultimately reduce the amount of international terrorism.
