The Russian Federation, similar to its predecessor, the Soviet Union, represents a classic case of repressive security. Typically for such systems, civil society usually plays a minimal role in the Russia’s security measures. Such weak involvement of civil society in security policies results in two opposite features of the Russia’s security system...
This chapter argues that the recent development in the South China Sea (SCS) increased the political tensions in the region and made it a test case for how the rest of East Asia will respond to the rise of China. It points out that the SCS region serves as an “echo chamber” of China's aggressive and expansionistic policy elsewhere on its periphery....
This chapter maps the development of global security architecture in the context of the “new terrorism” security paradigm, and the impact this is having on civil society – creating challenges for community integration, securitising political dissent, and potentially advancing fundamental social and economic inequalities. It argues that the inequali...

This book examines the intersection between national and international counter-terrorism (CT) policies and civil society in different national and regional contexts. The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 (9/11) against the United States (US) led to new waves of scholarship on the proliferation of terrorism and efforts to combat international terrorism groups, organizations, and networks. One of the arguments put forward was that some CSOs are serving as ideological grounds for recruitment of potential terrorists and a channel for terrorist financing. Consequently, states such as US, United Kingdom (UK), Canada, Australia, France, Russia, China, India, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda (among numerous others) established new ranges of counter-terrorism measures (CTMs) that target the operations of CSOs exclusively. The initial chapters of the volume connect national and international counter-terrorism (CT) policies and civil society (more specifically civil society organizations [CSOs]) in different national and regional contexts. We do not expect each chapter to individually illustrate the global character of the WOT and how this feeds into the domestic policies of each state. Counter-terrorism measures of various states have an international link, as they emerged out of calls by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), Financial Action Task Force (FATF), United States, United Kingdom and other Westerns powers for countries to established counter-terrorism laws. Consequently, various states in different part of the world established laws, institutions and policies that address the upsurge of new security threats posed by terrorism. Hence, our arguments that the implementations of these counter-terrorism measures are closing the spaces for civil society organizations to operate globally. We are arguing here that there is a global siege on civil society organizations in the guise of countering terrorism. The book brings together experts in various fields, advancing theoretical, methodological, and empirical debates on the intersection of these matters in the aforementioned regions. The editors seek to advance the discourse on global security measures and civil society by building a compendium of interdisciplinary research addressing these emerging issues in different regions, and a volume that would serve as the foundation for new wave of research in an area of both scholarly and policy importance. Hence, the book provides a comprehensive dialogue that enhances understandings of the relationship between security and civil society now and for the coming years. This volume is under contract with Manchester University Press and will be published in 2020.
The purpose of this volume is to develop a descriptive and analytical mosaic of the one of the most militarized regions of the world, bringing together conceptual approach to security with substantive and empirical analyses of nations and their politico-military postures towards the SCS. It addresses a lacuna in the existing literature regarding the security interests and strategies of the major state players in the SCS. This volume assembles a critical mass of scholars and experts on the SCS. In doing so, it presents the most comprehensive and elucidating volume on states policies and interests in the SCS and their system impact on the security architecture of the region. The salient questions posed are: What are the political, economic, and military goals, tactics, and strategies of the major claimant and non-claimant states concerning the SCS? What policies (e.g., counter-intervention) have been formulated and implemented in support of each state’s geopolitical pursuits in the SCS? To what extent have states engaged in military buildup, reorganization, and deployment based on their SCS interests and strategies? This volume is under contract with Bristol University Press and will be published in 2021.
This volume provides an current overview and critical analysis of (counter-)terrorism financing (CTF) and (anti-)money laundering (AML), and measures and practices directed at preventing and countering the flow of terrorism funding. In doing so, it outlines some of the major doctrines and policies of states and their key partners in Europe, Asia, North America, South America, the Middle East, and Africa. This volume brings together a diverse range of scholars and practitioners who specialize in theoretical/conceptual angles of the subject matter, empirical research, and cross-national/cross-group analysis. Collectively, the volume provides the most comprehensive resource in the area of countering the financing of terrorism and organized crime by engaging with national, regional, and group-specific approaches, challenges, and consequences. The overall focus encompasses legal measures, social policies, and military/security responses by states and non-state actors. The volume brings the most up-to-date counter-terrorist financing data under a single cover and title. This volume is under contract with CRC Press (Taylor & Francis) and will be published in 2022.
