About the Author

Jana Hoenke is a Lecturer in International Relations at the University of Edinburgh. She is also a senior research associate with the Collaborative Research Centre SFB 700 at Freie Universitat Berlin.


"The unique strength of Hoenke's argument lies, perhaps paradoxically, in refusing to attribute to multinational corporations a straightforward role in local security governance in contexts of weak statehood. Showing how local security managers combine different globally circulating security discourses and translate them into hybrid local security strategies renders corporations more 'real' (one could say more 'human') than studies that grant seemingly unified global discourses unlimited power over local practices. This means that her nuanced analysis of the security practices of mining companies helps to dispel many prevailing myths, and is therefore a must-read for scholars who wish to understand the complexity of the role of multinational corporations in contemporary sub-Saharan Africa. Furthermore, the careful interdisciplinary heuristic analytical framework that Hoenke applies to her case studies makes this book more generally of interest to anyone concerned with studying contemporary governance beyond the state in terms of the interrelations between global discourses and local practices." - Peer Schouten. School of Global Studies, University of Gothenburg
