ABSTRACT
The connection between climate change and security has recently become a central political problem and matter of discussion in academic research. Most works base their inquiries on the Copenhagen School of securitization in affirmative and in critical ways. The focus so far has been on identifying different securitizations of climate change and on the question of whether these have been globally successful. However, there are no systematic comparative studies of the concrete securitization processes in different countries. This paper intends to close this gap. We compare the (attempted) securitization of climate change in four countries with different levels of economic development and different climate policies: Gennany, Mexico, Turkey, and the United States. The core interest is to understand which actors pursue what kinds of securitization, why and what political consequences follow. This comparison yields insights into the conditions of success and failure of securitization.
