Sample text

Crucially, this approach requires us first, to widen the focus beyond the private military and security industry, its gendered practices, discourses, and effects and link scholarship on private security to transformations in global and local gender relations under neoliberalism. Second, we need to abandon the “decline of the state hypothesis” that dominates mainstream discourses on security privatization and has also found its way into some of the gender literature on the subject. This hypothesis suggests that the allegedly more women-friendly state is eroding at the expense of a masculinized global market for force.

Public and private are defined and valued differently, but a clear gendered hierarchy is retained. Discursive remasculinization is thus not only an effect of the private military and security industry but also a result of power struggles between state and market actors. Both instrumentalize gender ideologies as power tools that ultimately reproduce both the state and the market as separate, distinguishable entities that are hierarchically gendered. Discursive redefinitions of security, which Leander (2007a, 2009a) has identified as a central aspect of the privatization process, are also affected by remasculinization.

The state is seen to have a certain degree of autonomy, observable in state policies, but it is not an independent subject (Löffler 2011, 102). As a social process and manifestation of political power relations, the state is structured by gendered practices and discourses. Vice versa, gender as a structural and ideological category is constructed and organized through state institutions, policies, and discourses. Unlike static concepts of the eternally patriarchal state, such a conceptualization allows us to grasp the interconnections between transformations of the state and changes in gender relations, in the course of which masculinities and femininities are redefined and gender-specific patterns of labor division are reconstructed (Sauer 2008, 35).
