IR professor's new publication on security in the age of migration

Dr. Ali Bilgic, Assistant Professor at the Department of International Relations, has published his book on security and migration in Europe. Entitled Rethinking Security in the Age of Migration: Trust and Emancipation in Europe, Dr. Bilgic’s book studies, in the words of the publisher, ‘ideas and practices which can contribute to replacing the political structures of insecurity with emancipatory structures, where individuals (both irregular migrants and members of the receiving communities) enjoy security together’. Here is an extract from the publisher’s website: ‘Drawing on the security dilemma, critical approaches to security, forced migration and trust, the book demonstrates how common life between two groups of individuals can be politically constructed, in tandem with limitations, risks, and possible handicaps of initiating such a construction in world politics’.
