Research area(s)

I am curently working on a number of projects. The first is a book called Pacification. The second is a collectively-authored volume called Security Abolition. The third is a book called The Most Beautiful Suicide.

Much of my recent work has involved developing a critique of security, taking my earlier work on the state, the fabrication of order and the political mobilization of fear, in a new direction. The most recent development of this work takes the form of a book called The Politics of Immunity (Verso, 2022). Details can be found here: The Politics of Immunity.

An interview about The Politics of Immunity can be found on Red Medicine, here: Mark Neocleous-The Politics of Immunity

A second interview about The Politics of Immunity can be found on the New Books Network, here: Mark Neocleous-The Politics of Immunity
