Riassunto analitico
The aim of my thesis is to demonstrate how the power relations between police and military influence -and are influenced by- the international context, with the specific case studies of United States.<br>The theoretical background of my thesis is the Theory of Panopticon, which I apply to the international relations.<br>During the Cold War, the United States tried to fulfill this model that permitted to “check the inside” in order to “control the outside” (and vice versa), while maintaining the balance achieved with the USSR. This theory helps explaining two intertwining process, policing the military and militarization of the police.<br>In the first case, the army would no longer aim conquering new territories, but restoring the international order and maintaining it, as a policeman would do in a city: prevent and re-establish.<br>During the Cold War the policing the military process led to an imbalance of the relations between military and police power in favor of the army, which culminated in the 1990&#39;s. This imbalance led to a increasing militarization both of the police and the entire society. The police aim is not only preventing crime, but fighting enemies, just as a military force would do on its mission: preventing and regaining.
