Globalization has contributed to the growth of terrorism from a regional phenomenon into a global one. Precisely how it has contributed, however is hard to determine. The difficulty lies in the complex nature of terrorism and disagreements on what constitutes globalization. Global terrorism has been explained in cultural, economic and religious terms linked to globalization. Such terms are necessary, but ultimately are not sufficient, to explain the relationship. Technology associated with globalization has enabled the terrorist groups to conduct operations that are deadlier, more distributed, and more difficult to combat than they were in past. Technological advantage, however is one sided and states can use technology to diminish the global impact of terrorism.
