Global Insecurities

Series editor(s):

Catherine Besteman, Darryl Li


Global Insecurities publishes books that creatively explore security and insecurity, broadly understood, and that offer new alternatives for conceptualizing safety, danger, risk, and threat. The series focuses on how ideas, discourses, and practices of security intersect with issues of global political economy; the global discourse of terrorism and its effects; the emerging perceptions, constructions, and responses to risk as a feature of contemporary life; and the imagining of new alternatives to the security paradigm. In addition to addressing questions of ontological security in contexts of war, violence, and terrorism, the series also promotes work on security's economic, material, discursive, legal, phenomenological, and symbolic dimensions.
