This research seminar will discuss how North American and European political/security institutions continue to empower racially configured exclusions, subjugation, and terror through their iterations of how people hailing past colonies of the Global North should be ordered and seen. Introducing a conceptual framework of the colour line, Dr Amal Abu-Bakare will discuss IR theory’s capacity comprehend state counterterrorism approaches to the 2013 murder of Lee Rigby in Woolwich, and the October 2014 terrorist attacks in Ottawa and Quebec.
