Neoliberal security provision: Between state practices and individual experience
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Criminology.
2019 (English)In: Punishment & Society, ISSN 1462-4745, E-ISSN 1741-3095Article in journal (Refereed) Epub ahead of print
Abstract [en]

The article develops a new understanding of neoliberal security provision on the basis of available accounts of three different “states”; the penal state, the regulatory state, and the activating welfare state. I argue that these forms of state intervention provide individuals with security in the sense that anxiety is temporarily alleviated, while stabilizing the conflictual dynamic of global power structures. Marketization and organizational control account for the specifically neoliberal character. Such an understanding matters because it directs attention to the dynamic between state practices and individual experience, and the multitude of mechanisms, which not only promise but also provide security, however temporary and partial.
