Europe's 21st century challenge : delivering liberty by Didier Bigo( )

19 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 1,450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume provides a critical assessment of the liberties of citizens and others in the European Union (EU) and the different ways in which they are affected by the proliferation of discourses, practices and norms of insecurity enacted in the name of the safety of the citizen and collective security. It analyses from an interdisciplinary perspective the impacts of new techniques of surveillance and control of human movements over the liberty and security of the individual. The book offers a study of illiberal practices of liberal regimes in the field of security, and the relationship between the internal and external effects of these practices in an increasingly interconnected world, as well as the effects in relation to the place of the EU in this world. -- Back cover

Terror, insecurity and liberty : illiberal practices of liberal regimes after 9/11 by Didier Bigo( Book )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edited volume questions the widespread resort to illiberal security practices by contemporary liberal regimes since 9/11, and argues that counter-terrorism is embedded into the very logic of the fields of politics and security. Although recent debate surrounding civil rights and liberties in post-9/11 Europe has focused on the forms, provisions and legal consequences of security-led policies, this volume takes an inter-disciplinary approach to explore how these policies have come to generate illiberal practices. The book argues that policies implemented in the name of protection and national security have had a strong effect on civil liberties, human rights and social cohesion - in particular, but not only, since 9/11. The book undertakes detailed sociological enquiries concerning security agencies, and analyses public discourses on the definition of the terrorist threat. In doing so, it aims to show that the current reframing of civil rights and liberties is in part a result of the very functioning of both the political and the security fields, in that it is embedded in a broad array of domestic and transnational political, administrative and bureaucratic stakes
Controlling frontiers : free movement into and within Europe by Elspeth Guild( Book )

19 editions published between 2005 and 2017 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Foucault and the modern international : silences and legacies for the study of world politics( )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book addresses the possibilities of analyzing the modern international through the thought of Michel Foucault. The broad range of authors brought together in this volume question four of the most self-evident characteristics of our contemporary world-'international', 'neoliberal', 'biopolitical' and 'global'- and thus fill significant gaps in both international and Foucault studies. The chapters discuss what a Foucauldian perspective does or does not offer for understanding international phenomena while also questioning many appropriations of Foucault's work. This transdisciplinary volume will serve as a reference for both scholars and students of international relations, international political sociology, international political economy, political theory/philosophy and critical theory more generally

6 editions published in 2006 in English and French and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the name of protection and nationl security, we witness the development of both a transnational field of professionals of politics and of professionals of security (police, intelligence, military). This development might provide a feeling of safety, but il also induces illiberal practices that lead to resistance from judges, human rights groups and part of the public. Drawing on research from several European countries, this volume brings together essays on the way counterterrorism is embedded into the very logic of the fields of politics and of security, both in their internal and international dimension
