In-Depth: William Clapton
Emma and William delve into the concept of risk and its centrality to understanding security discourse and practice over the last 20 years.
What is Securitisation Theory and Security Discourse? How has it affected the way we see the world? Why and who has the power to create them? What are the hidden motives for it? What are some examples of it here in Australia and in the United States? Can this be changed?
