How and why Critical Security Studies matters in a changing world?

We are delighted to introduce the first of three videos, in which the editor-in-chief of New Perspectives journal, Dr. Benjamin Tallis, interviews Dr. Claudia Aradau, a Reader in International Politics in the Department of War Studies at King’s College London and the Editor of Security Dialogue.

In this part, Dr. Aradau and Dr. Tallis discuss how and why Critical Security Studies (CSS) matter in the contemporary world, what are the key developments in this area and how can CSS continue to stay relevant. In particular, Dr. Aradau highlights her own engagement with politics of CSS research methods, inspiration that could be drawn from critical research of security to other disciplines, debate on the nature of materiality, or emerging new fields of critical theorizing on security.
