Dissertation topic:
The Effectiveness of Counter-Terrorism Strategies: A Bootstrap Panel Granger Causality Analysis

Disertation abstract:
For decades, military interventions have been one of the most popular antiterrorism
policies for governments. However, increasing terrorist attacks in recent years
bring worries regarding the effectiveness of government anti-terrorism policies, in
particular vast military spending. In this regard, by using a bootstrap panel Granger
causality analysis we plan to examine the relationship between military expenditures and
casualties from terrorism.
