Whom are we reassuring when we speak of national security?: Ontological considerations about the nation-state
description The aim of this article is to promote some reflections about a concept that is one of the most used and polysemic in the field of International Relation as a science: National Security. Getting away from the traditional approach which considers National Security as State Security, this article attempts to show how the identity of a Nation-state can -and should- be part of its security politics and to point out which strategies are commonly used by governments when those identities are threatened. In order to accomplish this analysis, it has been made an examination of the concept of Ontological Security, from a more national -and less statist- approach, as in the domestic level as in the external one. Additionally, the Turkish case has been used to illustrate some issues concerning to the importance that identities hold for the States, even in the current international system.

Apartándose del enfoque tradicional que considera a ésta únicamente como la seguridad del Estado, el artículo contribuye a entender cómo la identidad de un Estado-Nación puede formar parte de sus políticas de seguridad y qué estrategias son comúnmente utilizadas por los gobiernos cuando dicha identidad se ve amenazada en el escenario nacional. Para poder realizar este análisis se plantea una revisión sobre el concepto de seguridad ontológica situándolo desde un enfoque más nacional y menos estatal, tanto en el orden externo como interno de los Estados-Nación. Además, se hace uso del caso turco para ilustrar diversos fenómenos que versan sobre la importancia que tiene para los Estados el mantenimiento de sus identidades, aun en el actual sistema internacional. O presente estudo tem por objetivo motivar a reflexão sobre um dos conceitos mais utilizados e polissêmicos no campo das Relações Internacionais como ciência: a segurança nacional. A parte da visão tradicional que considera a segurança nacional unicamente como a segurança do Estado, este artigo pretende ajudar a entender como a identidade de um Estado-Nação pode formar parte das políticas de segurança e que estratégias são geralmente utilizadas quando sua identidade é ameaçada. Para poder realizar esta análise, será necessária uma revisão sobre o conceito de segurança ontológica, começando deste um enfoque mais nacional e menos estatal, tanto na ordem interna como externa dos Estados- Nação. Para, além disto, iremos recorrer do caso da Turquia para ilustrar empiricamente múltiplos fenómenos sobre a importância que tem para os Estados a manutenção da suas identidades, mesmo no atual sistema internacional.  2015-06-05 2020-01-08T19:42:09Z 2020-01-08T19:42:09Z info:eu-repo/semantics/article info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion http://revistas.unimilitar.edu.co/index.php/ries/article/view/579 10.18359/ries.579 http://hdl.handle.net/10654/34691 spa http://revistas.unimilitar.edu.co/index.php/ries/article/view/579/339 /*ref*/Berenskoetter, F.
