Examining the Effect of Repressive and Conciliatory Government Actions on Terrorism Activity in Israel

Abstract: 

This paper examines the impact of repressive and conciliatory actions by Israel on terrorist activity using vector autoregression. Increases in repressive actions lead to a significant reduction in terrorist attacks. Conciliatory actions, on the other hand, have no effect.
