Security as Social Process: Marginalised Groups in the Globalised ‘New Wars’ Era
2010 (English)In: International Political Sociology, ISSN 1749-5679, Vol. 4, no 1, 1-14 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The globalized security situation characterized by transnational threats and international interventionism in "new wars," connect non traditional local actors and traditional global actors to one another in unprecedented ways. We argue that children in particular need to be highlighted because they are highly pertinent to the globalized security situation, yet they make up one of the few agents that have remained non-politicized in the eyes of the scholarly community. The article suggests a framework of analysis that can generate analyses on security of traditional as well as non-traditional agents. Placing non-traditional groups in the center of attention serves to mirror the complexities of the current security situation better.
