Chapter 3 places the analysis of developments in Eastern Europe in a broader international context, examining how the transformation of the field of security has been shaped by processes of European integration as well as globalization—particularly through the influx into Eastern Europe of multinational corporations, including global security companies. In particular, as each of the countries examined in this book embarked upon processes of European integration, they came to be deeply affected by EU legislation and specific accession/partnership conditionality, including in the field of security. In addition, the chapter explores the ways in which dynamics of European integration and globalization have generated new opportunities for reshaping the field of security for a series of domestic actors engaged in performing security.

Keywords:   security commercialization, European integration, globalization, security field, performing security
