0 This presentation embeds securitisation theory in relevant constitutive elements of poststructuralism. It examines the role of identity and representation in the (re)construction of power and security in the context of migration. #WIISTOTC #Constructivism #Deconstruction
1 Poststructuralism (PS) has reclaimed its relevance in the prevailing turbulent global order. While PS has attracted some criticisms, some of its elements are applicable in the context of populism, migration, terrorism, “post-truth” politics & technological advances. #WIISTOTC
2 Poststructuralism disrupts conventional norms where realities, meanings and symbols exist to be discovered. It informs the examination of representations and their influence in the production of knowledge, identities, power and ensuing actions. #WIISTOTC #Constructivism

3 In security studies, securitisation is grounded in language theory  read on speech-act by Austin (1962). Securitisation views language not as independent of but as constitutive of the social reality it constructs. #WIISTOTC #Constructivism #Deconstruction
4 Security issues in the migrant context are often articulated around globalisation, statehood, citizenship and belonging. #Context - consider political, economic, social, technological, environmental, psychological and other factors. Example of invited space 👇 #Voice #WIISTOTC
5 Some of the factors that inform the construction of dominant narratives on security & migration are predominantly systemic. They present analytical & normative dilemmas particularly within the field of security & the reproduction of securitisation. #WIISTOTC #Deconstruction
6 These statements conceive and depict migrants as constituting an existential threat to the state. More broadly, the discourse represents a pattern of the securitisation of transnational migration that has gained global currency in recent years. 👇 #WIISTOTC #Constructivism
7 Really? #WIISTOTC
8 While the (re)construction of identity involves multiple actors, host states establish fluid boundaries and patterns of inclusion and exclusion of migrants. They can be honoured for significant contributions today and transformed into a criminal “other” tomorrow. #WIISTOTC
9 The dominant framings and narratives on migration and security (re)produce power relations. In addition, the relativity of identity facilitates the reconstruction of perceptions and reality around notions of security. #WIISTOTC
