This article presents a conceptual model of the influence of terrorism on expatriates' work attitudes and performance. After briefly discussing the challenges connected with terrorism and the expatriation of employees into high-risk countries, we develop a causal model based on the stress perspective. Several stressors related to a specific situation and to interaction with other people contribute to an expatriate's individual stress level, which is then reflected in his or her work attitudes and performance. Then, propositions on the postulated relationships are derived, and moderating influences are discussed. The article concludes with managerial implications and directions for future studies.
