Terrorism and Policy Conference - 2014

The Center for Global Collective Action, University of Texas at Dallas, is sponsoring its sixth annual academic conference on terrorism and policy, which will bring together senior and junior scholars, who are doing significant research on terrorism.

Each year, the conference includes participants from previous conferences along with new participants. The intent of the conference is to try to establish linkages among the significant contributors to the study of terrorism and policy. The interdisciplinary orientation is an essential feature of the conference.

Participants will present research papers that explore terrorism and policy using theoretical (e.g., game theory and rational choice models) and empirical methods (e.g., time series and panel estimations).

Participants are coming from the University of Alabama, Claremont McKenna College, American University of Sharjah (UAE), University of the Basque Country (Spain), University of North Carolina, Pennsylvania State University, Hebrew University, University of Illinois at Chicago, Princeton University, Yale University, Heidelberg University, University of Freiburg, University of Paderborn, and Birmingham University. There are also a number of paper presenters and participants from the University of Texas at Dallas. The conference includes scholars from economics and political science.

There are fifteen papers in total to be presented. Some of the best papers will be refereed for inclusion in a special issue of the Oxford Economic Papers. The five previous conferences resulted in special issues of Economics & Politics (November 2009), Journal of Conflict Resolution (April 2010), Journal of Peace Research (May 2011), Public Choice (December 2011), and Southern Economic Journal (April 2013). The conference is on May 21-24, 2014 in Cecil H. Green Hall 3.606.
