Abstract :

The terrorist attacks of September 2001 (9/11) in the United States deeply shocked the nation and its allies. This event completely changed the world dynamic and deeply modified politics in North America. The US government, which had been taken by surprise, has taken major steps to ensure the safety of its population since then.

The new political imperative that resulted in the United States could be best summarized as “national security first.” Massive investments, deep institutional restructuring, and considerable policy changes have characterized this new quest for what could be called ‘perfect security.’ What were previously viewed as multilateral partnerships, based upon negotiation and mutual benefits, are now what Frank P. Harvey, a professor at Dalhousie University, categorizes as unilateral decisions, based upon “Homeland Security” imperatives.
