Political resilience and EU responses to aviation terrorism
MetadataShow full item record
In this article, we examine how European authorities have responded to reported threats to aviation resulting from individual terrorist tactics. We do so by applying the notion of political resilience and drawing on Palonen’s “policy, polity, politicking, and politicization” model as well as on Malcolm Anderson’s concept of “politics of the latest outrage.” We argue that the European Union response to aviation terrorism has created polity transformation and generated a long list of new policies but has also in the process become politicized and subject of politicking, with some high-profile measures being criticized for having a deleterious impact on passengers’ rights.
