The Security Archipelago: Human-Security States, Sexuality Politics, and the End of Neoliberalism
by nmallina uploaded 9 months ago
Paul Amar, an associate professor in the global and international studies program at the University of California-Santa Barbara, specializes in comparative politics, human geography, international security studies, political sociology, global ethnography, theories of the state, and theories of gender, race, and postcolonial politics. He has worked as a journalist in Egypt, a police reformer in Brazil, and a U.N. conflict resolution and economic development specialist. Amar’s research, publishing, and teaching focus on the areas of state institutions, security regimes, social movements, and democratic transitions in the Middle East and Latin America, and trace the origins and intersections of new patterns of police militarization, security governance, humanitarian intervention, and state restructuring in the megacities of the global south. His recent publications shed light on the racial, sexual, and gendered nature of new forms of security governance; reconceptualize how security-sector transfers shape state formations in Latin America and the Middle East; and offer new frames for explaining the link between institutional changes in military and security apparatuses. “The Security Archipelago: Human-Security States, Sexuality Politics, and the End of Neoliberalism” (2013), is his latest book.
