Revenues from Homeland Security markets – police technology, counter-terrorism, surveillance, border control, crisis management etc. – continue to account for a larger and larger share of the revenues of many defense conglomerates. Their diversification has been supported by lucrative government contracts and R&D subsidies won by lobbyists. Activists and researchers have made visible the hypocrisy of companies that fuel wars by selling weapons. This workshop will examine the key players in the Homeland Security industry, the policy frameworks that support them, and strategies for resistance and democratization.
