Bu çalışmanın amacı, turist gelişleri ile terörizm arasındaki nedensellik ilişkisini incelemektir. Çalışmada, diğer çalışmaların aksine, bir ülkenin terörizm düzeyinin belirlenmesi için Ekonomi ve Barış Enstitüsü tarafından hazırlanan Küresel Terörizm Endeksi (GTI) kullanılmıştır. 2006-2016 dönemi için on üç gelişmekte olan ülkeyi kapsayan çalışmada, daha yansız ve güvenilir sonuçlar elde edebilmek için turist gelişleri ile terörizm arasındaki nedensellik ilişkisi, Dumitrescu ve Hurlin (2012) testi ile incelenmiştir. Sonuçlar, terörizmden turist gelişlerine doğru tek yönlü bir nedenselliğin olduğunu ortaya koymuştur. Buna göre gelişmekte olan ülke yetkililerinin diğer değişkenler sabitken, turistlerin kendilerini güvende hissetmeleri ve daha fazla turist çekebilmek için güvenlik önlemleri almaları gerektiğini göstermektedir.
The aim of the paper is to analyze the causal nexus between tourist arrivals and terrorism. In this paper, unlike other studies, we used the Global Terrorism Index (GTI) prepared by the Institute for Economics & Peace for the determination of terrorism level of a country. For more unbiased and robust estimates, Dumitrescu and Hurlin (2012) method is employed to examine the causal nexus between tourist arrivals and terrorism in thirteen emerging countries cover the period 2006-2016. The results indicated that there is a one-way causality running from terrorism to tourist arrivals. Results suggest that emerging country authorities should increase security precautions to ensure that tourists feel safe and in order to attract more tourists, ceteris paribus.
