Securitisation theory has become one of the key components of security studies and IR courses in recent years, and this book represents the first attempt to provide an integrated and rigorous overview of securitization practices within a coherent framework.

Actor, Audience s and Emergency Measures: The second axis, which I think might constitute a new domain of enquiry is the relationship between securitization and normativity. As originally envisioned by the Copenhagen School, securitizing moves contain a performative element of promise —chiefly the promise that the threat under consideration is going to be addressed strongly and urgently with extraordinary policies.
