Michael Jetter: “Terrorism and Media”
Michael Jetter studied economics and mathematics in Heidelberg and Memphis (USA), where he earned a Ph.D. graduated in Economics. In addition to research and teaching in Colombia, Germany and the USA, since 2017 he has also been Senior Lecturer at UWA with a focus on political economy, public economics, media economics and behavioral economics. In his talk, the economist talks about the role of the media in international terrorism and the relationship between media coverage and growing terrorist violence. His assumptions are based on his analysis of some 60,000 articles on terrorist attacks between 1973 and 2012. This talk will be held in English.
