Self-Defense against the State of Exception

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

My paper explores the contradiction between goals and means in the pursuit
of civilization and public order in historical contexts in which states seek
to expand territory and power. My focus is on how this dynamic plays out in
former settler societies, and how their histories of settler colonialism
have shaped their legal development and indeed the very understanding of
legal authority. The history of colonialism and imperialism reveals how
territorial expansion and political power were consolidated through a
contradictory practice of domination that has entailed the simultaneous
construction of the rule of law as the norm and the constant violation of
the fundamental principles of rule of law to achieve political ends as a
practice. I am centrally concerned with the state¹s claim to uphold and
defend democratic values in moments of crisis by stripping democratic rights
away from communities who wish to be a part of the nation but are cast under
suspicion.
