Silence Becomes Louder: Institutional Determinants of Suicide Bombing
Political Science
(Bachelor’s programme)

2017
Despite empirical research showing that countries with higher level of voice and accountability are less prone to suffer from terrorism, it is not yet clear what type of terrorist activity is more likely to appear when vertical accountability is absent. This article investigates the effect of voice and accountability on suicide bombing attacks growth in countries with different institutional conditions. The results are obtained by using QOG and GTD databases for regression analysis. The results lend support to the two hypotheses tested: 1) voice and accountability has significant reductive effect on suicide bombing growth; 2) the effect of voice and accountability on suicide bombing is more profound than the effect on other types of terrorist attacks.
