Data Wars: New Spaces of Governing in the European Fight Against Terrorism
In the aftermath of the events of 9/11, political debates and public investigations emphasised the problem of locating information about risk and threat in advance of a terrorist attack. The idea that data offer the solution to problems of security risk has quickly established itself at the forefront of what has come to be known as the war on terror. Financial information occupies a special place within data-led security practices, because it is assumed to be able to reveal'blueprints' of terrorist networks. The goal of this research project is to map and analyse the reconfigured spaces of governing that are emerging through the deployment of financial information in the European war on terror.
Data Wars is an NWO-ESRC sponsored Bilateral Research Project in coorperation with theUniversity of Durham, UK.
The 9/11 Effect: Art and Cultural Politics in Post-9/11Europe
Immediately after 9/11, it was asserted that art and literature could not matter much. However, it has become clear that the politics of fighting the war on terror intimately depends upon a landscape of cultural production. If the spectacle of 9/11 was a symbolic targeting, then so too have been the political and military responses taking place in the name of the "war on terror". This research group has assembled around the premise that a thorough understanding of contemporary modes of governing in Europe has to include an analysis of the diversity of ways in which visual culture and cultural representation play a role in their constitution. Joint project with, amongst others, Dr. Jaap Kooijman, Dr. Joyce Goggin and Dr. Margriet Schavemakers.
Risk and the War on Terror , Co-edited with Louise Amoore (2008)
Risk and the Waron 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.
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.
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.
This literature study on the financing of terrorism (in Dutch) examines available public evidence concerning the financing of terrorism, evaluates existing policy measures and makes anumber of policy recommendations. It was offered to the Dutch Counterterrorism Coordinator (NCTb) in 2007.

European Security Culture: Threat Perception, Risk and Preemption
In the context of the fight against terrorism and other contemporary security issues, it is often asserted that Europe 's role in the world is affected by a distinctly European perspective on security matters. There is a widespread idea that Europe is more normative,multilateral, and respectful of human rights than other global powers, especially the US . Notions of cosmopolitanEurope or normative Europe are important inacademic debates as well as in policy discussions.
At the same time however, European governments and the European Union have demonstrated themselves to be keen supporters of preemptive security measures, including the deployment of commercial data for security decisions, blacklisting and asset-freezing, and fighting radicalisation. This involves a turn to what Louise Amoore ( Durham University ) and I have called 'banal preemption', through the deployment of risk technologies and mundane commercial data for security purposes. This research project, funded by the NWO Vidi programme, investigates the existence of a security culture in the European Union, and aims to describe, analyse and appraise such culture. Such culture has a bearing on the specific definitions of threat and security deployed within European security establishments, as well as on the prioritisation of political action.
What is novel about the project proposed here is its deployment of the term 'culture' in order to investigate how European security practice is affected by factors that exceed the political and institutional structures of the EU. We aim to broaden the concept of security culture beyond notions of national histories and norms, in order to develop a truly interdisciplinary perspective on the mutual implication of culturally mediated threat perceptions, institutional imaginaries and policy adjudication. The project seeks to foster a dialogue between social sciences literatures on securitisation and threat perception (as developed, for example, in the work of Lene Hansen, David Campbell, Jef Huysmans and Didier Bigo), and humanities literatures on the culturally mediated nature of modern violence (as developed, for example, in the work of Richard Grusin, Rita Raley, J. David Slocum and Jaap Kooijman).
The project deploys the lens of the fight against terrorism in Europe as the case studies through which the influence of threat perceptions on the Europeansecurity agenda is tested. In a time when the European Union openly struggles with its political and military role in the post-9/11 global order, this research problem has academic urgency as well as societal relevance. The project devotes specific attention to the culture of preemption in European security practice, and has an empirical focus on the politics of asset-freezing, risk analysis, critical infrastructure protection and the prevention of radicalisation.
Key research questions
1. What is meant, precisely, by the term 'culture' in the context of historically evolving European security cooperation? What theoretical tools do we have to conceptualise a European security culture and how is such culture empirically and historically knowable?
2. How is the threat of terrorism understood and communicated in key EU policy documents? How were the terrorist attacks in Madrid in 2004 and London in 2005 represented in media, and to what extent have these been appropriated in European policy discourse? What policy priorities and adjudication principles emerged from these particular European understandings of the threat of terrorism?
3. What is the role of preemption, precaution and premediation in the contemporary European security culture? How are preemptive counterterror policies including asset-freezing implemented across the Union ? How can such policies be understood, analysed and opened to a broader public debate?
