Speech over! Securitization in acts: National economic security
Author(s): Gwladys Nicimbikije
Abstract: In order to ensure the practicalities of the securitization from its ‘speech to acts’ within new sectors and new security, the author feels motivated to pose the following question: how should national economic security respond to the imminent new national threat by considering the premise and the impact of national stability? The author holds the view that the origin of broadening the security derives its source form its continuous studies besides its awareness that a state's threat does not always come necessary from outside but is likely to happen within the state and cause damage on the same scale as traditional threats. Evidence is provided through various examples while the analysis is based on theories related to critical security studies and securitization as speech and even more in acts by widening and deepening security through economic security as a new threat in a new sector.
