Abstract

[This chapter is based on a previously published article in Social Indicators Research written by the same authors: Estes, R. J., & Sirgy, M. J. (2014). Radical Islamic militancy and acts of terrorism: A quality-of-life analysis. Social Indicators Research, 117, 615–652. The chapter examines the relationship that exists between varying degrees of terrorism occurring within a select group of 27 member states of the Organization for Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and: (1) their years of independence since colonization; (2) their current types of polity; (3) the extent of their civil liberties and political freedoms; (4) country levels of perceived public corruption; and (5) the overall level of each country’s broad-based social development (or quality of life). The political fragility of each state is examined as well as is its overall level of social chaos. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the principles needed to frame an “agenda for action” that seeks to accelerate the pace of mutual development and advances in quality of life for people living in both predominately Islamic and Western societies.]
