Contesting Security: Strategies and Logics by Thierry Balzacq

Contesting Security investigates to what extent the 'logic of security', which underpins securitization, can be contained, rolled back or dismantled.

Featuring legitimacy as a cement of security practices, this volume presents a detailed account of the "logic" which sustains security in order to develop a novel approach to the relation between security and the policies in which it is engraved. Understanding security as a normative practice, the contributors suggest a nuanced, and richer take on the conditions under which it is possible, advisable or fair to accept or roll back its policies.

The book comprises four sections, each investigating one specific modality of contesting security practices: resistance, desecuritization, emancipation, and resilience. These strategies are examined, compared and assessed in different political and cultural habitats.

This book will be of much interest to students of critical security studies, securitisation theory, social theory, and IR in general.
