Research output: Book/ReportBookResearch


Who controls security in a culture of fear? The erosion of traditional safeguards in the quest for security raises questions about the meaning of justice, public protection, legal safeguards and resilience. This book presents a cross-disciplinary exchange on the notion of fear and its influence on international criminal, economic and security policy. The authors chart new lines of research as they proffer a variety of perspectives on the problems and trends that are emerging from national and international responses to insecurity. The diversity of the views expressed in this volume underscore the complexities of assuring security in a world beset by a culture of fear.
