Guidelines
Using fear as an instrument to achieve ideological, political or financial objectives impacts economy in both developed and developing countries. In this thesis we shall establish the effect of terrorism on various market segments and subsequently determine the relationship between economic growth and extent of the attacks. Special emphasis will be placed on the effect in developed countries. The thesis shall provide a complex analysis of this issue, putting together the already conducted researches assessing the impact of specific attacks at short-time periods. So far, it has been proved that an effect of this sort exists, however, it has not been quantified. The main contributions are therefore the investigation of the issue from broader perspective and the comparison of its development over time.

In the practical part of the thesis, we shall determine key market parts affected by terrorist acts and simultaneously influencing economic growth. Subsequently, using the data from Global Terrorism Database and The World Bank, we shall apply regression analysis to investigate the described relationships and their development over time.
