This paper remaps the geographies of terrorism. Everyday terrorism (domestic violence) and global terrorismare related attempts to exert political control through fear. Geographical research on violence neatlyreflects the disproportionate recognition and resourcing that global terrorism receives from the state. Thepaper explores the parallels, shared foundations and direct points of connection between everyday and globalterrorisms. It does so across four interrelated themes: multiscalar politics and securities, fear and trauma,public recognition and recovery, and the inequitable nature of counter-terrorisms. It concludes with implicationsfor addressing terrorisms and for future research.
