Description:
"Security in Africa : a Critical Approach to Western Indicators of Threat questions the dominant Western narrative of security threats in Africa. Based on an analysis of traditional security studies and Western security policy, Claire Metelits argues that commonly used indicators are based on mainstream security studies and provide only circumscribed analysis of threats to international security. By assessing the origins of this traditional approach to security and problematizing failed states, political instability, Muslim populations, and poverty, among others, Security in Africa makes the case for a critical approach to framing security challenges in Africa"--Back cover.
Security threats in Africa -- Framing the study of security -- The securitization of space -- The securitization of instability -- Securitizing Africa's Muslim populations -- Poverty and threat in Africa -- Fluid landscapes.
