11 SEPTEMBER AND THE WIDENING NORTH-SOUTH GAP: ROOT CAUSES OF TERRORISM IN THE GLOBAL ORDER

Author(s): Elnur, Ibrahim

About this Entry
Abstract Elnur comments on the Sep 11 event, as was the case of the Suez Canal War of 1956, may signal a turning point in the global order. He asserts that this may, in essence, be symptomatic of the approaches to crisis management adopted by the states involved, although the new alternative global order is evidently not yet born. He further suggests that the dynamics contributing to the North-South gap involve increasing differentiation and marginalization, and that the specificity of Islamic responses to such dynamics is not irrelevant.
