Proscribing terrorism: Security, Identity, Politics

Violence and exiting violence Seminar - Wednesday Decembre, 6 2017

Lee Jarvis participate in the Violence and exiting violence Seminar.

Numerous states and international organisations maintain a list of proscribed – or banned – terrorist groups. Entry on such a list typically outlaws an organisation from a designated territory, often triggering a range of offences including around membership of, or support for, such a group. Despite widespread use, and quite significant consequences for citizenship and civil liberties, proscription remains curiously under-researched: not least vis-à-vis alternative counter-terrorism instruments.

In this presentation Lee Jarvis draw on ongoing research with Tim Legrand of the Australian National University to explore the implications of this power for the politics of (national) security and identity. Focusing primarily upon the British experience, he will argue proscription, is: integral to the imagination and shaping of contemporary political boundaries; illustrative of a more complex politics of security than that often associated with (counter-)terrorism policy; and, indicative of the importance of ritualistic behaviour in the reproduction of authority and democracy.
