According to Bevir’s genealogy of how joined-up governance came to be applied to security policy, there was a fundamental change after the Cold War as theories of security and securitisation now focused on non-traditional threats and security came to be seen as dependent on the provision of a range of socioeconomic goods. Of importance is how security and policy became intertwined in the management and delivery of relevant socio-economic goods that were deemed to constitute the essence of security. The chapter makes visible how policy-makers began to emphasise ‘joined-up’ or ‘whole-of-government’ arrangements in order to administer an expanded notion of security, especially issues that were deemed to be outside the realm of single government agencies.
