Global terrorism and lone wolves (DIEEEA44-2013)

Global terrorism has failed because a global space has not been established and, consequently, a global agenda does not exist. Global terrorism has not been transformed in local terrorism mainly due to the lack of cultural gearing and because it represents an Islam different from the one of the populations in which it is installed. The result has been that has squandered the initial social support, losing the initiative and being geographically encapsulated. The phenomenon of “lonely wolf” is an example of this failure because it prioritizes the logistical and operational issues over the political ones. The terrorism commitment of fighting against the West is questioned both by lack of resources and results.
