In the 21st century, globalizing development agendas have often become inseparable from militarized or "securitized" interventions: aid missions embed themselves in walled police compounds, international organizations focus on quelling insurgencies, private investments flood the protection sector, and trade agreements are built on or broken by questions of national security, food security, oil security, etc. Recent studies have argued that this merging of developmentalism and securitization has been legitimized and enacted by discourses of humanitarianism and human security, and by the neo-colonial politics of tutelage and protection.
The scholarship on this development/security nexus has focused its critique on European or North American interventions, particularly in states occupied in times of war, or in so-called "failed states" where national sovereignty is weak and imperial legacies are strong. But these studies have left unexamined the role of states and transnational formations in the global south as agents except when seen as receivers or victims of Eurocentric agendas. This collection addresses these gaps in the literature by focusing, instead, on emergent powers in the global south that are transforming and deploying distinct internationalist security and development models.
This book was published as a special issue of Globalizations.
