 Abstract: Terrorism is often considered the epitome of the complex contemporary threat governance in which the traditional distinctions of threat governance are increasingly challenged. Terrorism does not easily lend itself to categories, such as inside/outside, national security/crime control and war/crime, and hence the governance of terrorism has warranted a reconfiguration of traditional threat governance and the division of labour between the military and the police. In Denmark terrorism is deemed an important part of the remit of the police, calling into question the traditional restriction of the role of the police to conventional crime control. Against this backdrop, I examine the Danish policing of terrorism.
I do, however, not seek to assess the ‘newness’ of terrorism nor of the governance of terrorism. Rather, I examine, first, how terrorism is framed and governed as an object of policing through rationalities of threat in the Danish policing of terrorism. Second, I examine the democratic implications following from this concerning the distribution of authority and responsibility between state and civil society. To this end, I, first, identify five ideal-typical rationalities of threat in the critical literature of security studies and criminology: securitisation, precaution, deterrence, neutralisation and normalisation. Second, I outline an analytical strategy, which examines the contextual, empirical negotiations and translations of these ideal-types into hybrid forms of governance in the threat communication practices of the Danish police, thus remaining sensitive to local variations and change in the governance of terrorism.
By studying the negotiations of rationalities of threat in hybrid forms of governance across policies of enforcement, resilience and preparedness, and early prevention, I demonstrate how terrorism is ambiguously constituted as a ‘special’ kind of crime in the complex, heterogeneous and paradoxical (in terms of both the governance of terrorism and the relationship between state and civil society) Danish policing of terrorism. Finally, I conclude that how terrorism is framed and governed as a threat is of great political and democratic significance.
