Chapter 17: The global insecure counterterrorism city
Restricted access

This chapter describes the city as part of a moving assemblage of entities and practices in the field of counterterrorism, through which the city is co-defined (‘the global insecure city’) and of which it is co-constitutive at the same time (‘the global counterterrorism city’). Indeed, counterterrorism practices taking place in the city reveal local insecurities awakened or propelled by global processes of which they become an integral part of. In order to show this, urban interventions meant to design-off-terrorism are analysed within the growing global regulatory work of preventing/countering violent extremism (P/CVE) and the related processes of network-building among international, national, and local authorities, private infrastructures, and people in communities and neighbourhoods.
