Abstract: This presentation aims to analyze the dilemmas of security in the contexts of Afghanistan and Syria. More specifically, it will focus on dilemmas of “security and democracy” in the Syrian case and “security and stability” in the Afghan case. The concept of security has been a key topic in political science and international relations. During Cold War years, there was a strong tendency to reflect whole discipline of international relations as the locus of various security dilemmas. However, post-Cold War studies on security tended to be more independent and to use inter-disciplinary approaches. Such a novelty was a result of changes in international security structure as well as the new security problems. In this presentation, we will touch upon new theoretical discussions and new challenges on the ground within the framework of dilemmas of security with that of democracy and of stability respectively. We aim to comprehend the different perspectives of the security studies in light of the specific discussions on the dilemmas of security - democracy and security - stability with the empirical evidence that the cases of Syria and Afghanistan propose. In addition to theoretical discussion and provision of our own novel framework on the issue, the presentation rests on research consisting of field trips depending mainly on observation and in-depth interviews with the policy-makers, civil society organizations, academics and public opinion leaders in Syria and Afghanistan. This presentation will attempt to link theoretical discussions with the policy making considerations in the cases of Afghanistan and Syria, which highly suffer from the implications of the security-democracy and security-stability dilemmas. The research and the presentation will contribute to literature by illuminating the complex nature of the dilemmas of security and by offering analytical tools and conceptualizations in understanding inside/outside dichotomy of security at domestic and global levels.

Abstract: This paper aims at contributing to a better understanding of how security gets produced by studying the way in which private security actors try to settle the controversy over what security is and how it is to be attained in the case of airport security at Amsterdam Airport. Whereas private security companies by law have neither more rights than normal citizens nor the right to decide upon security policy, this paper shows how due to the involvement of many private actors a liberal rationality or governmentality constrains and governs attempts to feasibly settle any controversy with regards to airport security. Building upon insights from actor-network theory, it focuses particularly on how translations inside this assemblage render security as a technical, measurable, economic issue and politics as an irrational force to be rationalized, tamed and enrolled. Actor-network theory warrants a focus on how spokespersons perform security through translations of heterogeneous elements into stable assemblages. Through such a micro-sociology of security governance, it becomes apparent how security in effect gets privatized and security separated from politics by presenting politics as ʻirrationalʼ and separated from ʻrealʼ security expertise. The work of Michel Foucault is used to elucidate how two distinct security rationalities compete within the Amsterdam airport security assemblage to settle the security controversy in their interest. These two rationalities are presented by 15 interviewed spokespersons as distinct translations of the relation between security technologies, the private security workforce and the demands of clients and regulations. As such, this paper presents an in-depth case study of what Abrahamsen and Williams presented analytically in their 2009 paper as ʻglobal security assemblagesʼ. It furthermore expands upon Lippert & OʼConnorʼs 2003 analysis of airport security assemblages that focused on the private security workforce.

"From State-Centric Security toward Embodied Security: Feminist Perspectives on Subject of Security in Deterritorialized World" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Studies Association 48th Annual Convention, Hilton Chicago, CHICAGO, IL, USA, Feb 28, 2007 <Not Available>. 2020-01-26 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p179476_index.html>

Abstract: The aim of the paper is to reconceptualize the concept of state-centric security toward embodied security from feminist perspective. The subject of security means the subject to be secured. This paper acknowledges the complexities of the multiple insecurities created by the deterritorialized world in which wars and conflicts affect more and more civilian population, and have devastating effects on the lives of women, children and vulnerable groups of men. However, the role of women in conflict prevention, peace-building and reconstruction is often overlooked. In this paper the emphasis is on the discussion how changing the subject of security may help to acknowledge these gendered and embodied insecurities and thus develop the concept of security within IR so that the agency and subjecivity of these formerly unacknowledged groups can be taken into account.
