Video: Stuart Schrader on Badges without Borders

Video is now available from our New Book Salon with Stuart Schrader, in which he discusses his 2019 book, Badges without Borders: How Global Counterinsurgency Transformed American Policing, in conversation with Julian Go. 3CT fellow Adom Getachew moderates.

From the Cold War through today, the U.S. has quietly assisted dozens of regimes around the world in suppressing civil unrest and securing the conditions for the smooth operation of capitalism. Casting a new light on American empire, Badges without Borders shows, for the first time, that the very same people charged with global counterinsurgency also militarized American policing at home.

Mentioned in the video: Schrader’s article “Defund the Global Policeman” was recently published by n+1. You can read it here.
