(p.147) Chapter 8 Toward an Ideal Subordination?
The Killing Consensus

Graham Denyer Willis

University of California Press

As a way of concluding, the final chapter considers what the preceding chapters mean for a certain cohort of states and the paradigm of sovereignty that they suggest. I explore and question how pressures for both democracy and security are colliding in ways that tend to institutionalize the influence of organized crime, including the decentralized provision of security for historically marginalized residents. I ask whether we need to consider the trajectory of state formation of these states and advocate for a scholarship that sets aside common assumptions of the ideal state.

Keywords:   security, democracy, state formation, mafia, organized crime, Italy, third-wave democracies, sovereignty by consensus
