Ethical Security Studies: A New Research Agenda by Jonna Nyman

At a time of grave ethical failure in global security affairs, this is the first book to bring together emerging theoretical debates on ethics and ethical reasoning within security studies.

In this volume, working from a diverse range of perspectives-poststructuralism, liberalism, feminism, just war, securitization, and critical theory-leading scholars in the field of security studies consider the potential for ethical visions of security, and lay the ground for a new field: "ethical security studies".

These ethical 'visions' of security engage directly with the meaning and value of security and security practice, and consider four key questions:

  • • Who, or what, should be secured?

  • • Who or what are the most legitimate agents, providers or speakers of security?
  • • What do ethical security practices look like? What ethical principles, arguments, or procedures, will generate and guide ethical security practices?

Informed by a rich understanding of the intellectual and historical experience of security, the contributors advance innovative methodological, analytical, political and ethical arguments that represent the cutting edge of the field.
