This interdisciplinary collection places corporate security in a theoretical and global context. Arguing that corporate security is becoming the primary form of security in the twenty-first century and affecting an increasing number of people inside and outside of corporations, this is one of the first books to examine corporate security practices in multiple countries and from multiple perspectives.
Bringing together key international scholars from sociology, criminology, political science, critical security studies, international relations, and law, the contributors reveal corporate security practices as diverse, complex, and theoretically-stimulating, and explore a range of issues including regulation, accountability, militarization and strategies of securitization.
Providing an enlightening discussion of the implications of corporate security practices for legal, social, and political theory, this book reveals how these practices are conceived, organized, and managed, and assesses the consequences of more spaces, people, and organizations being governed through corporate security.
