Images and International Security examines the role images play in world politics. Images circulate rapidly, reaching audiences across the globe. Images can help create conflicts, they document atrocities, but they also show how former enemies can be reunited. Images “speak” security, but governments, diplomats, journalists and activists compete to define what exactly images “say”.
Images and International Security was launched in 2014 and is funded by the Danish Council for Independent Research. The project is devoted to building new theory and empirical insights on why and how images influence international relations.
