  • Political Science


This article reports on a survey of United States-based multinational corporations (MNCs) and the corporate programs they use to reduce the impact of terrorism. It was found that less than 50% of the MNCs surveyed had formal programs to deal with a terrorist attack. Most of the MNCs that did have an anti-terrorist program spent their money on security equipment and not on training executives and their families. The training that did take place concentrated on handling weapons and avoiding being kidnapped. Respondents were also critical of the federal government's lack of assistance in dealing with terrorists.© 1993 JIBS. Journal of International Business Studies (1993) 24, 465–478
