Abstract

While the analysis of transnationalized forms of security governance in the contemporary postcolonial world features prominently in current debates within the field of Security Studies, most efforts to analyse and understand these processes proceed from an unquestioned ‘Western’ perspective, thereby failing to consider the methodological and theoretical implications of governing (in)security under postcolonial conditions. This paper addresses this void by highlighting the entangled histories of (in)security governance in the (post)colonial world and by providing fresh theoretical and methodological perspective for a security studies research agenda sensitive to the implications of the postcolonial condition.
