Despite significant theoretical distinctions between securitization onthe domestic and the international levels, he finds that the outcomeof addressing religion within the context of security hinges uponpartnerships. Whereas states may harness the power of internationalallies, they cannot often find analogous domestic allies; therefore,states that attempt to securitize religion at home are more vulnerableto counterattack and more likely to abandon their efforts. Securing theSacred makes a significant contribution to the fields of political theory,international relations, Islamic studies, and security/military studies.
