Is International Terrorism an Inevitable Consequence of Globalization?: Legal Aspects of Globalization
This part of the chapter explores the relationship between globalization and the escalation of international terrorism. It does so by highlighting the tendency for some ethnic and religious conflicts to be exported beyond their traditional realms. These issues are explored through the framework of the rule of law and human rights. It will be argued that ethnic and religious warfare and related terrorist activity is often the product of long standing grievances involving serious violations of fundamental rights. Implicit in this analysis is the liberal theory of rights and justice.1
