Summary

Numerous terrorist attacks in Madrid, London, Paris, Brussels and Berlin have made the issue of terrorism an ongoing subject of citizens’ and governments’ attention in the European Union. Extensive media coverage reaches massive audiences that become eyewitnesses to the events, leading to widespread trauma. Terrorist incidents inflict far-reaching psychological damage on people’s quality of life through self-reported reduced levels of happiness and trust in other people and civic institutions.
