    Secrecy and Subjectivity: Double Agents and the Dark Underside of the International System2021Inngår i: International Political Sociology, ISSN 1749-5679, E-ISSN 1749-5687, Vol. 15, nr 4, s. 443-459Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing on a wide range of material, from memoirs of former spy masters to the highly acclaimed TV series Le Bureau des Légendes, this article shows how documentary as well as fictional accounts of double agents cast light on a “dark underside” of the international system. This dark underside is made up of exceptional spaces of secrecy in which intelligence organizations and spies operate. The article's main point of entry when analyzing these spaces is the intimate connection between secrecy and subjectivity. While secrecy as a social practice has received increased attention in sociological accounts of secret intelligence, the constitutive role of secrecy in relation to subjectivity is a much less explored theme. This theme, it is argued, becomes especially valuable for thinking about the conflicting lines that constitute the life and becoming of the double agent. In particular, it can be drawn on to show how this subject both is captured by the transparent norms and limits of the international state system and effectively transgresses those limits. In this way, rather than upholding a dichotomy of secrecy and transparency as two separable sides of the international system, the double agent emerges as a disruptive figure calling for its deconstruction.

    The Anthropocene rupture in international relations: Future politics and international life2023Inngår i: Review of International Studies, ISSN 0260-2105, E-ISSN 1469-9044, Vol. 49, nr 4, s. 597-614Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The Anthropocene rupture refers to the beginning of our current geological epoch in which humans constitute a collective geological force that alters the trajectory of the Earth system. An increased engagement with this notion of a rupture has prompted a lively debate on the inherent anthropocentrism of International Relations (IR), and whether it is possible to transform it into something new that embraces diverse forms of existence, human as well as non-human. This article challenges that possibility. It shows how much of the current debate rests on the idea fulfilling future desirable ideals, which are pushed perpetually beyond a horizon of human thought, making them unreachable. As an alternative, the article turns to Jacques Derrida's understanding of the future to come (l'avenir), highlighting the significance of unpredictability and unexpected events. This understanding of the future shows how life within and of the international rests on encounters with the future as something radically other. On this basis, it is argued that responding to our current predicament should proceed not by seeking to fulfil future ideals but by encountering the future as incalculable and other, whose arrival represents an opportunity as much as a threat to established forms of international life.

    The Ethics of Neorealism: Waltz and the Time of International Life2019Inngår i: European Journal of International Relations, ISSN 1354-0661, E-ISSN 1460-3713, Vol. 25, nr 1, s. 229-249Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article addresses the question of what it means to think of a distinctly international ethics by developing a radical reinterpretation of Waltzian neorealism from a Derridean deconstructive perspective. The core argument of the article is that Derridean deconstruction effectively explains why there is an ethics of neorealism in the first place, and why this ethics cannot be easily overcome. Underpinning this argument is a notion in Derrida’s philosophy of survival as an unconditional affirmation of life, which finds an equivalent in Waltz’s theory of international life in the anarchic system. On this basis, I claim that Waltz’s theory is ethical, not despite its focus on the structural conditions of survival, but precisely because of it. Moreover, the article shows how this notion of ethics renders universal ethical ideals, beyond relations of violence, not only impossible, but undesirable. They are undesirable because to actually fulfil them would be to undermine the conditions that make international life possible in the first place. In this way, various attempts to theorize the meaning and implications of international ethics that hold on to the notion of ethical ideals beyond relations of violence become untenable. Instead of aspiring towards such ideals, the article concludes, international ethics should be thought of as an unconditional affirmation of the incalculable future that structures international life and inevitably exposes it to the worst forms of destruction, but also enables the making of responsible decisions.

    The Limits of Historical Sociology: Temporal Borders and the Reproduction of the "Modern" Political Present2016Inngår i: European Journal of International Relations, ISSN 1354-0661, E-ISSN 1460-3713, Vol. 22, nr 1, s. 99-121Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article develops a poststructuralist critique of the historical sociology of International Relations project. While the historical sociology of International Relations project claims to offer a more nuanced understanding of the state and the international, this article argues that it lacks critical reflection on the notion of a common ground on which ‘history’ and ‘sociology’ can successfully be combined. In order to problematize this ‘ground’, the article turns to Jacques Derrida’s critique of attempts to solve the history–structure dichotomy by finding a perfect combination of historicist and structuralist modes of explanation. Exploring the implications of Derrida’s critique, the article considers how the combination of ‘history’ and ‘sociology’ can be linked to a sovereign politics of time, which reaffirms rather than challenges the limits of the ‘modern’ political present and its relationship to the past, as well as the future. In response, it is suggested that a more radical critique is needed, one that seeks to disrupt the ‘modern’ political present and the contingent ground on which it rests.

    The politics of intelligence failures: power, rationality, and the intelligence process2023Inngår i: Intelligence and national security, ISSN 0268-4527, E-ISSN 1743-9019, Vol. 38, nr 5, s. 726-739Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article develops a new approach to analysing intelligence failures. Rather than looking for their causes, intelligence failures are here analysed as part of a politics seeking to reify the value of rationality and the taming of power. To analyse this politics, the article draws on Bent Flyvbjerg’s notion of an asymmetrical relation of power/rationality, according to which power has a productive role that is inseparable from claims to rationality. The asymmetrical relation of power/rationality is used in order to challenge the instrumentalist language that pervades much of the literature on intelligence failures and what can be learned from them.

    The Virtualization of Security: Philosophies of Capture and Resistance in Baudrillard, Agamben and Deleuze2016Inngår i: Security Dialogue, ISSN 0967-0106, E-ISSN 1460-3640, Vol. 47, nr 3, s. 255-270Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The virtual has during the last couple of decades emerged as a forceful conceptual tool in security studies. While used primarily in order to question assumptions about an objective truth concerning the meaning and value of security and different forms of insecurity, the implications of drawing on this concept vary considerably depending on how the virtual is conceptualized, and specifically how the potentiality of the virtual is linked to the process of actualization. Turning to the philosophies of Baudrillard, Agamben and Deleuze, as well as key thinkers in contemporary security studies, this article delineates three different approaches to analysing the virtualization of security. Focusing in particular on how these approaches point to contending views of ‘capture’ and ‘resistance’, it is argued that the choice of approach has serious implications for grasping what is at stake politically in the process of virtualization. These implications relate, more precisely, to how the virtual opens up and/or closes down the spaces of resistance that the modern subject of security traditionally has relied upon. In this way, the virtualization of security is not only important for thinking about capture and resistance, but challenges the very ground on which the modern subject of security rests.

    Time2016Inngår i: Critical imaginations in international relations / [ed] Ní Mhurchú, Aoileann; Shindo, Reiko, London: Routledge, 2016, s. 262-276Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The discipline of international relations (IR) is traditionally concerned with the spatial dimension of politics and the territorial borders of states. This chapter focuses on a point for thinking about time and IR: the relationship between time and space. It considers the work that history does as a technique and a practice of inscribing borders in time', which are used in order to separate the past from the present and the future. The chapter explores some recent attempts to explore what these other experiences of time might refer to and how they manifest themselves in contemporary world politics. Assumptions of time play a crucial role in IR not least because they help constitute ideas about the temporality of international politics and the temporal direction in which interstate relations are heading. One prominent example of how to think the political significance of time beyond the limits of IR is James Der Derian's book Antidiplomacy.

    New Materialisms, Discourse Analysis, and International Relations: A Radical Intertextual Approach2015Inngår i: Review of International Studies, ISSN 0260-2105, E-ISSN 1469-9044, Vol. 41, nr 1, s. 3-25Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article investigates the recent ‘New Materialisms’ turn in social and political thought and asks what the potential theoretical and methodological significance might be for the study of International Relations (IR). To do so we return to debates about the theoretical status of discourse in IR as it is in this context that the question of materiality – particularly as it relates to language – has featured prominently in recent years. While the concept of discourse is increasingly narrow in IR, the ‘New Materialisms’ literature emphasises the political force of materiality beyond language and representation. However, a move to reprioritise the politics of materiality over that of language and representation is equally problematic since it perpetuates rather than challenges the notion of a prior distinction between language and materiality. In response, we draw on earlier poststructural thought in order to displace this dichotomy and articulate an extended understanding of what analysing ‘discourse’ might mean in the study of IR.
