ABSTRACT

Terrorism is not a new phenomenon which has been in existence for years carried out by

individuals and organizations mainly for political reasons. Notwithstanding, due to the

activities of these terrorist groups, they will in general debilitate a state's capacity to guarantee

the wellbeing and security to its citizens. Using Al-Qaeda as a case study, a group in existence

for over 2 decades, the study focuses on their terror acts such as the bombing of train stations

in Madrid 2004, and London 2005, the Bali club bombing, and how it has impacted the world

at large, economically, psychologically, and socially. More so, for the objective of the study to

be achieved, the study made use of qualitative research to analyze the subject of this research

work. In the context of theoretical framework, the theory of Realism was used. Based on the

findings the study concludes that the US assemble and sponsor terror networks mostly for short

term purposes and where they are no longer useful, they are disposed, although sometimes

disposing such network is not the easiest of tasks. Political intentions remain the major link

between terrorism and global security with major actors, while promotion of religious

ideologies come as the minor indications because they are not which much state sponsorship

like the political element. Regarding the specific impacts of terrorism on Economic Security,

findings includes the reduction of FDI, reduced capital inflows, stalls stock markets, shifts

investment both capital and labour. It ushers in higher uncertainty thus reducing confidence

among potential investors. The study recommends an understanding of the adaptive and

resilient nature of transnational terrorist groups is critical. By incorporating this data into

antiterrorist doctrine, strategy, and tactics, which various actors in the fight against terrorism

can adjust their operations to meet the changing demands of the security environment against

a dynamic enemy such as Al Qaeda.
