''Exploring the relationship between media and terrorism: a panel study of south asian countries''
( 2013, Vol. 33 No.1 )
This study empirically explores the relationship between terrorism and the media in selected South Asian countries. Using Negative Binomial Regression, the results indicate that freedom of media has actually been used by militants to their benefit in inciting more terrorism in the region. Hence, both the print and electronic media should be careful in the coverage and broadcast of terrorist attacks.
