Analysing the example of data territorialisation
Andreas Baur-Ahrens

hierarchies with the aim of providing high availability and security. I argue that data territorialisation including national routing and storage requirements contributes to a general trend of cyberspace centralisation. Furthermore, I analyse the proposed changes to the Internet infrastructure with regard to power relations. Power and its analysis is an important part of mobility

government (Hajer 2000 : 138–9). For this chapter, Castells’s terms help identify a field of power relations in which the space of places, as embodied here by the sovereignty–territory nexus and globalisation as the pinnacle of the space of flows, triggers a productive tension in which new forms of governing become possible. More concretely, the chapter examines how the abolition

criminal, and the terrorist – their movement is made possible by vastly immobile structures such as runways, arrival and departure terminals, and entry and exit routes to connecting cities (cf. Adey 2006b ). Approaching mobility as sets of differentiated relations draws attention to how forms of mobility and immobility are produced in an overlapping and productive manner rather than as a dichotomy between the mobile and the

Lessons for critical security studies?

countries to the market economy and the information and communication technologies revolution. The overwhelmingly optimistic or grandiose tone of Urry’s ( 2000 ) bold manifesto to move ‘sociology beyond societies’ has been subsequently replaced, however, by a more cautious understanding of how ‘mobility, immobility and moorings’ are dialectally connected (Hannam et al. 2006 ). It would be easy to be

vanquished the Spanish fleet in Manila Bay (1 May 1898), business journals switched their position, pointing to the advantages of an independent Cuba. They toyed with colonies, an isthmian canal and US presence in the Pacific, the very ideas previously derided. The ‘fabled China market’ in particular loomed large, though some authors have disputed this. 47 The ‘glut thesis’ prevailed, namely that a surplus of goods was piling up in the US, which needed an outlet

Between humanitarianism and pragmatism

’. Gorchakov’s lack of interest in anything related to the Ottoman East left ample room for Ignatiev to try to forge his own vision of Russian foreign policy in the region. 7 His various diplomatic successes in Constantinople, where he served from 1864 until 1877, and his good relations with Sultan Abdulaziz and various grand viziers, made him the most powerful European diplomat at the Porte, hence the nickname Vice Sultan. Ignatiev was convinced that the vital interests of

and resources away from the poor and to the elite. This is not only an abstract system but also an ideology on how to govern and administrate. As Chandra Mohanty ( 2013 : 970) writes, neoliberalism is marked ‘by market-based governance practices on the one hand (the privatisation, commodification, and proliferation of difference) and authoritarian, national security-driven penal state practices on the other’.

Public presence, discourse, and migrants as threat
Giannis Gkolfinopoulos

arrival and presence is widely considered a serious security problem. However, neither illegal migration nor (in)security issues are natural phenomena. Migrant illegality is conceived here as a historically formed social regime. It is a configuration dependent on power relations and especially state power. It is dependent on the law, which sets the criteria of legality and, in so doing, carves out the
