New Publication: Nina Klimburg-Witjes and Paul Trauttmansdorff (2023): Technopolitics and the Making of Europe. Infrastructures of Security. Routledge. 

September 1, 2023 | Publications

This book explores the processes and practices of the securitization and de-securitization of European infrastructures, and how political institutions interact with security and insecurity. Expert contributors address distinct areas, from border politics and biosecurity to health governance and law and border control enforcement, to examine how infrastructures are envisioned, designed, negotiated and built. They explore how ‘infrastructuring’ contributes to emergent forms of European identity, integration, and statehood. The book will appeal to scholars and students of Science and Technology Studies, Political Sociology, Critical Security Studies, International Relations, European Integration Studies, Infrastructure Studies, or Critical Border and Migration Studies.
