dc.description.abstractSecurity has long been a major interest in the studies of international politics. The end of the Cold War marked a turning point in international politics and security studies, creating avenue for critical security studies to soar. The development of security studies sees the establishment of securitization and desecuritization as the new framework to study security, and many critical security scholars have embarked on the discussion on this framework. However, desecuritization has been much less focused compared to securitization, and therefore, the thesis attempts to conduct an in-depth study of desecurtization, and through it, contribute to critical security studies. The thesis will employ the study on identity to explain for how identity influences the government’s decision to securitize or desecuritize an issue. The case study is Japan in the period between 2011 and 2014, right after the 3-11 Triple Disaster at Fukushima.en_US
