Patrick and Dan host a panel discussion with Jarrod Hayes, Nawal Mustafa, and Robbie Shilliam.

Their guests try to provide theoretical context for and some larger analysis of the recent controversy over claims that Securitization Theory is irredeemably marred by its putative reliance on colonial and racist scaffolding.

This is a complete episode. The second part consists of an epilogue in which the panel covers some additional topics that did not make it into the main recording.
