Beyond better borders? Policy dilemmas of transnational security threats

Timothy Legrand

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

    Abstract

    The growth of transnational security threats has eroded policy officials’ capacity to deliver local policy outcomes without substantial international collaboration. This paper looks at the evolving and diffuse threats posed by international terrorism and contemporary concerns around ‘foreign fighters'. Drawing attention to the proliferation of transgovernmental policy networks amongst Anglosphere countries, the paper argues that the advent of transnational security threats has prompted governments to further diminish democratic scrutiny by establishing exclusive and opaque security policy networks under the rubric of national security. Here I consider the implications of this trend for public administration scholarship and the attendant challenges of resolving this global-local dilemma.
