Governance of Security and Ignored Insecurities in Contemporary Europe


Add your own review!

Overview

This book explores changes in security governance in Europe from the 1990s, focusing on some of the most important consequences: the proliferation of ignored insecurities, including the increase of oncological diseases, environmental disasters, shadow economies reproducing neo-slavery and fiscal fraud, and the general damage to the res publica. What is the articulation of removal, reclamation and consequently the implementation of devices and the establishing of prevention practices? Why are the majority of victims and also the control agency professionals seemingly resigned to these ignored insecurities? Following more than 20 years of research in the area, the authors examine these questions and how the securitisation of society has exacerbated. They argue that the primary cause of the increase in ignored insecurities is the consequence of the neoliberal turn in security governance. This book proposes an innovative approach to security governance, not only through a serious analysis of the balance of the costs and benefits, but also highlighting what we have termed `ignored insecurities'. The authors propose a review of the problems, showing that the governance of security is a crucial element of the contemporary political organisation of society.

Reviews

`This impressive collection shows the limits of what governments refer to as "security". Much is left out of this governmental notion. And what it leaves out seems to have expanded as the significance of the term has grown. A must read.'Saskia Sassen, Columbia University, USA, and author of Expulsions`This most welcomed volume brings fresh empirical, legal and analytic perspectives to the well-worn, and often obfuscated, issues of European security governance. Case studies spanning several decades document rarely treated insecurities involving disease, refugees, migrants and environmental despoliation that are ignored or made worse by current approaches to the securitization of society . With intelligence and passion the book argues for a broadly defined human security rather than a more narrowly defined national security. It forces us to ask security for whom? And at what costs and risks for those least privileged, as well as for the future of all persons?' Gary T. Marx, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA, and author of Windows Into the Soul: Surveillance and Society in an Age of High Technology
