After the signing of the Schengen Agreement in 1985 and the
subsequent dismantling of the internal boarders among the EU member
states, -Moors at the coast - or the contemporary equivalents such
as -flood- or -invasion- have become a part of a discourse, in
which migration is constructed as a security threat. In the late
90s, the Copenhagen School suggested a framework to study security
discourses, to identify the actors and the different elements of
the securitizing grammar, and to understand how different issues
become a security problem. However, this framework has never been
tested and no case studies have been done to verify whether
securitization indeed happens as suggested. Is securitizing grammar
universal? Can everything be securitized? Can securitization happen
if one or several of the components of the securitizing logic are
not present? In this book, we will look at the case of migration in
Spain to find these answers and see how and whether migration has
been successfully converted into a security problem. Students of IR
should find this work intriguing as a constructivist approach to
the study of migration in one of the EU countries.
