This research addresses the liberal problematic of security in the post-intervention context. While military campaigns to eliminate ‘enemies’ and secure territory in the post-9/11 context have received sustained focus, equally evident but under-examined are strategies concerned with establishing broader control over a social and political environment. The governance of distant populations has become the subject of designs for international security, raising enduring questions about Western forms of bio-political management over non-Western life and space, and the politics of waging war by other means.
