Lee Jones discusses the changing landscape of securitization and sovereignty at The Disorder of Things:
The ‘solutions’ to non-traditional security threats thus often reinforce the very inequalities in power and resources that spawns them in the first place. Western donors and agencies are often directly complicit, working around entrenched interests instead of challenging them, in order to maintain access and ‘show results’. In the name of international security, they often exacerbate insecurity for the most disadvantaged, while doing little to control threats and risks. This can only change if, rather than seeking to manage and contain security problems, we challenge the structures that generate them – structures in which Western governments and agencies are often themselves directly implicated.
