    FOLLOW analyses the ways in which private companies operate in the frontline of security practice. This project follows the trajectory of suspicious financial transactions across private and public spheres. It studies the ‘chain of translation’ whereby a transaction is rendered from bank registration to suspicious transaction to court evidence.

    FOLLOW uses the notion of a Chain of Security in order to conceptualise the ways in which security judgements are made across public/private domains. We visualise the path of the suspicious transaction as a chain of translation, whereby commercial transactions are collected, stored, transferred and analysed in order to arrive at security facts.

    FOLLOW is a 5-year research project at the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science research (AISSR) of the University of Amsterdam. FOLLOW is supported by Consolidator Grant of the European Research Council. For more information, publication and events, see:

    Journal of Cultural Economy

    Journal of Cultural Economy is concerned with the role played by various forms of material cultural practice in the organisation of the economy and the social, and of the relations between them. I am a member of the Advisory board.

    Journal of Cultural Economy

    Risk and the War on Terror , Co-edited with Louise Amoore (2008)

    Risk and the War on Terror offers an interdisciplinary set of contributions which debate and analyze both the empirical manifestations of risk inthe War on Terror and their theoretical implications. From border controls and biometrics to financial targeting and policing practice, the imperative to deploy public and private data in order to'connect the dots' of terrorism risk raises important questions for social scientists and practitioners alike.

    Link Riskandthe War on Terror

    Virtue, Fortune and Faith: A Genealogy of Finance , University ofMinnesota Press, 2005.

    Less than two centuries ago finance-today viewed as the center of economic necessity and epitome of scientific respectability-stood condemned as disreputable fraud. How this change in status came about, and what it reveals about the nature of finance, is the story told in Virtue, Fortune, and Faith . A unique cultural history of modern financial markets from the early eighteenth century to the present day, the book offers a genealogical reading of the historical insecurities, debates, and controversies that had to be purged from nascent credit practices in order to produce the image of today's coherent and-largely-rational global financial sphere.

    Link: Virtue,Fortune and Faith: A Genealogy of Finance

    International Political Economy and Poststructural Politics , Palgra ve, 2006.

    This edited volume brings together leading scholars to debate the promises of poststructural politics within the study of the International Political Economy (IPE). The volume offers a sustained theoretical dialogue on the meaning of discourse,identity, and representation for practices of political economy. It addresses the boundaries of the discipline of IPE and interrogates how a poststructuralpolitics challenges these boundaries to include, for example, thepolitics of everyday life and the politics of identity and resistance.
