Communication as legitimation in Spanish CVE
Bringing lessons from the past
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This chapter examines how the global CVE paradigm is being transposed in Spain. In analysing the recent counter-terrorist past and contemporary communication of CVE strategy, this chapter makes two arguments: overall, that as CVE programmes are globalised, case specificities have a definite power to shape the transposition; and that legitimation was central to past counter-terrorism and has been wrought into a ‘masterpiece’ of the contemporary CVE approach. Exploring why and how ‘communicating’ is a priority within the Spanish CVE strategy is a question which sheds light on the specificities of the Spanish case, on the global diffusion of CVE, and on the broader problem of coercion and legitimation.
