Title Correlations between forced migration and terrorism
Correlações entre migração forçada e terrorismo
Creator de Azevedo, Christian Vianna
Description Europe has been lately plagued by several terrorist attacks. The migration wave from the Middle East towards Europe has contributed to the perception of a possible connection between refugees and terrorism. There are many debates around this supposed connection, some in favor of it, and others not. However, this article aims to demonstrate that ‘migration waves’ or ‘refugee crisis’ per se cannot be considered as factors that promote or cause terrorist attacks. There is simply not enough empirical evidence to support the connection between forced migration and terrorism.
A Europa têm sido palco de diversos atentados terroristas nos últimos anos. A recente onda migratória do Oriente Médio para a Europa contribuiu para a percepção de uma possível conexão entre refugiados e terrorismo. Há diversos argumentos a favor e contra desta suposta conexão. Todavia, este artigo busca demonstrar que ‘ondas migratórias’ ou ‘crise de refugiados’ não devem ser considerados como fatores que impulsionam ou ocasionam per se, ataques terroristas, pois não há evidências empíricas suficientes que comprovem o nexo causal entre migração forçada e terrorismo.
