Abstract

Terrorism is likely to continue well into the future, presenting a new type of risk for companies that engage in international business transactions. Worldwide, government policymakers have introduced a variety of security measures to contain terrorism while trying not to reduce/distract global trade and investment. For international business (IB) scholars, this opens a new field of inquiry. This paper outlines different streams of research relative to terrorism, related security measures, and international business. Suggestions are made regarding the unique role that multinational enterprises can play in abating terrorism, for example, by taking steps to reduce global poverty and hatred, directly negotiating with terrorists, and developing new technology to counter terrorism.
