Terrorism shortens cabinet duration

11 January 2012

Terrorism, on average, shortens cabinet duration. That is the main result of research by Richard Jong-A-Pin and Jochen Mierau. In an analysis of a data set comprising 2,400 cabinets in over 150 countries in the period 1970-2002, they find that terrorism significantly increases the probability of cabinet failure. Jong-A-Pin: ‘When we compare the impact of terrorism relative to other variables affecting cabinet duration, we find that terrorism has a greater impact than economic growth, but less than variables characterizing the political environment.’ Their paper Terrorism and cabinet duration, published in International Economic Review, is the new FEB Publication of the Month.
