challenged by the apparent proliferation of conspiracy theories at the rational core of modernity’s apex state. This chapter engages with approaches that move away from the paranoid style paradigm, using these resources to rethink the issue of Arab-Muslim conspiracy theory. 5 A central theme advanced in what I call the conspiracy culture literature is that conspiracy theories

particular responses or reactions. Existing literature on how controversial interrogation techniques come to be used explores both how official approval comes to be given and how individuals come to use such techniques without authorisation. In other instances there is an absence of explicit authorisation but the presence of official tolerance. 7 The international human rights lawyer Philippe Sands’s research

The EU and the governance of European security
Emil Kirchner and James Sperling

In its earliest manifestation, the European project was explicitly a security project. The European Coal and Steel Community, in addition to providing an institutionalised mechanism for consolidating and rationalising the European coal and steel industries after the war, provided France and the other European states a security guarantee against a rearmed Germany. The failed

/11 – upsurge of academic, political and public interest, the issue of terrorism, of course, has a much longer heritage. Indeed, it is now commonplace to note that the term itself derives from the experience of the French Revolution of 1793–94 (Gearson 2002 ; Chaliand and Blin 2007a ): a thoroughly modern invention, perhaps, born of humanity’s growing confidence in its own agency to affect socio

field of security studies and the Asia-Pacific seldom mention these experiences. Even though the number of those rendered insecure by these experiences stretch far into the hundreds of thousands, traditional security studies remains preoccupied with a more ‘conventional’ agenda. Particularly now, amidst fears of regional terrorism, the literature and focus of security in the Asia

normative basis of UN peacekeeping and the UN’s evolving role in world politics. The literature on the UN’s Cambodia experience has rightly pointed to the ‘comprehensive’ nature of the mission. What is less well understood is the normative meaning and implications of this comprehensiveness, which is what this chapter seeks to elucidate. Here we explore the local, regional and global interests

historical structural setting, which has a good deal of forward momentum. The Congo was in many ways the Somalia of its time. ‘Never again another Congo’ prevailed as the international motto for nearly thirty years. How might this be explained? In contrast to the dominant preoccupation in the peacekeeping literature, issues of ‘success’ and ‘failure’ have not been the primary focus

the legality and morality of intervention. Russia drew on pluralist notions of sovereignty, non-intervention and the primary responsibility of the Security Council to maintain international peace and security, whereas the UK and states including the Netherlands, the United States, Canada, France and Slovenia, drew on solidarist norms of human rights protection and (questionable

Redefining security in the Middle East
Tami Amanda Jacoby and Brent E. Sasley

the notion of ‘redefining security’. Even during the last decade, the literature on this subject has remained small. In comparison to Western regions and states where, it is argued, liberal capitalist democracies do not go to war, especially with each other ( Mueller, 1990 ; Doyle, 1986 ), the Middle East remains an area in which protracted militarized, armed conditions of conflict are staples of the
