: States no longer fear pariah status by openly declaring their intent to regulate and control cyberspace. The convenient rubric of terrorism, child pornography, and cyber security has contributed to a growing expectation that states should enforce order in cyberspace, including policing unwanted content.

. Recently, my PhD student Amal Abu-Bakare surprised me. She’d read the essay and wanted to tell me how much she’d liked it. She compared my writing to that of Ta-Nehisi Coates, in his Between the World and Me, a book I had yet to read.2 Amal identifies herself as a black Muslim feminist; she is working to unravel the complexities of racialisation, in particular the racialisation of religion, implicated in counter-terrorism in Canada, where she’s from, and the UK. Her comments prompted me to go back and reread my own essay. I’m no longer the same person who wrote that

The ministry has been frequently mired in controversies and media attacks, leading it to be represented as a ‘political graveyard’ (Painter, 2008 ). The Home Office is responsible for areas of policy that are especially enticing from the perspective of the tabloid press: policing, prisons, terrorism, asylum, drugs, antisocial behaviour, all in addition to migration. This means that the

Germany’s combat role in Kosovo in 1999, a critical juncture in this development, considerably increased the momentum to modernise the Bundeswehr, an objective given even greater impetus by the events of September 11 2001 and the subsequent war on terrorism, imposing on German security thinking a global perspective and exploding the notion that traditional national and alliance defence remained the core

He does not advocate disengagement from the threat of international terrorism in the modern age, but he does see the US administration’s tendency towards militaristic solutions as ultimately self-​defeating. Its intelligence gathering, as events in the 2010s gave testimony to, covered an ever-​increasing multitude of confusing sins.

Finally, the PKK were able to collect a “revolutionary tax” from Kurdish asylum seekers in Greece, as in, for example, a camp at Patras. 22 Not that the Turkish government needed any encouragement. Furious, Ankara demanded, no less, Pangalos’s extradition for his part in the Nairobi affair. President Demirel, denouncing Greece as country that supports terrorism, and warned that Turkey may well
