Inclusion, Exclusion and the Governance of European Security

For those fortunate to live in a prosperous democratic state in the first decade of the 2000s, the politics of inclusion seems a natural state of affairs. It is indeed one of the most powerful legitimating claims of democratic political life. The ability to deliver welfare, prosperity and security to all citizens is the premise of successful electoral politics. This book considers one important aspect of the relationship between inclusion and exclusion, namely, how it has been played out in the sphere of international security, how the organisation of security on a European level has developed since the Cold War watershed, and what enduring forms of exclusion have remained. The credibility of the claims made on behalf of the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation rest on enlargement and partnership and, in security terms, the functional competence of these two organisations in addressing post-Cold War concerns. This book elaborates the notion of ‘security governance’, itself seen as related to the more familiar concept of security community, and looks at two important ‘excluded’ states: Russia and Turkey.

Keywords:   North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, European Union, Cold War, inclusion, exclusion, security community, security governance, international security, Russia, Turkey
