This study raises two questions: Have terror attacks been globalized and if so, is the phenomenon somehow linked with globalization. Two opposite hypotheses are tested by trend analysis for the years 1968-2007, using several statistical tools. The principal conclusions are that terror attacks have not become globalized and even display signs of localization since the 1990s. Furthermore, globalization is not significantly connected, positively or negatively, with transnational terror attack trends.
