The diasporization of population in context of (in)security: the transnationalization of the security border

Abstract : The study of diaspora has generally meant the study of transnational cultural practices and transnational politics, as if we can understand the complexity of the diasporic identity by only focalizing on its effects. In this presentation we try to reverse this perspective by firstly theorizing one of the specific contexts where population can and is appealed to in order to produce a diasporic identity. This context, namely the (in)security context, will be explored by using concepts from critical security studies that emphasise the impact of state security practice on the process of diasporization. In our view diaspora as a practice used by population whom are subject to an (in)security context can be seen as a specific strategy of governmentality. Indeed this category attributes particular desecuritizating functions to those identified as diasporic, thus involving them as actors in the transnationalization of the security border of the state in which they are living.
