Lecture Series Cluster of Excellence "The Formation of Normative Orders"

Prof. Pinar Bilgin, Bilkent University, Ankara

Abstract

How to think about security in a world of multiple differences? In this lecture, I build on the contributions of Critical Security Studies (defined broadly) and draw upon the insights of Postcolonial IR to suggest that thinking about security in a world of multiple differences entails inquiring into the international in security and security in the international. By ‘inquiring into the international in security’, I refer to the need for incorporating others’ conceptions of the international into the study of security. By ‘others’, I mean those who happen not to be located on or near the top of hierarchies in world politics, thereby having less influence in shaping various dynamics (including their own portrayal in world politics). By ‘inquiring into security in the international’, I point to the need to understand how others’ insecurities shape (as they are shaped by) their conceptions of the international (including IR scholarship).
