Abstract

This contribution finds that urban (but not rural) poverty fuels domestic and anti-U.S. terrorism in 43 developing countries. It argues that urban poverty aids non-state groups which use terrorism as a means to capture rents and consolidate popular support.

Keywords : urban poverty; terrorism; anti-Americanism; clientelism
