The root causes of terrorism

Bekir Çınar

Abstract


This paper aims to discuss the root causes of terrorism, which might be political systems and political administration and policies. It debates that without knowing the root cause of terrorism, there will be no plausible solution to the problem. Further, the paper tries to prove that the root causes of terrorism might not be economic, social, ideological or beliefs and religions. The core theme of terrorism can be injustice that is product of the political system and its activities. Therefore, the political system and decision-making are the root cause of terrorism. In short, this means that any suggestions to solve the problem of terrorism will not be successful unless they address the political system.

Keywords
