Securitisation in the Non-West

Simon Paul Mabon (Editor), Saloni Kapur (Editor), Matthew Johnson (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


The concept of securitisation has gained increasing prominence in the past decade. Initially developed in Copenhagen, the term has been used to describe the broadening of the security agenda and the framing of particular issues as existential threats across the world. In spite of this prominence, very little work has been undertaken that questions the extent to which the concept can be applied beyond the Western world. This volume engages with these questions, providing a theoretical overview of issues with using the concept beyond the West, along with empirical papers looking at its use in a number of different contexts.
