Abstract:Based on affective events theory and previous research, a model was developed and tested to analyze the effects of terrorism fears on job attitudes (i.e. job satisfaction and affective commitment) and turnover intentions. The study is based on questionnaire data collected from 201 permanent faculty members of public sector universities in Pakistan. Partial least squares structural equation modeling was used to validate the model and found substantial support for study‟s hypotheses. The results show that fearing future terrorism negatively influences faculty members‟ job attitudes, and subsequently leads to their intent to leave. Further, job involvement and job attitudes interact to predict turnover intentions. The paper explores an important but still under-researched area of management and organizational interventions to mitigate the detrimental effects of terrorism fears.
