CARVALHO PINTO, Vânia. Exploring the interplay between Framing and Securitization theory: the case of the Arab Spring protests in Bahrain. Rev. bras. polít. int. [online]. 2014, vol.57, n.1, pp.162-176. ISSN 1983-3121.

This article advances the theoretical integration between securitization theory and the framing approach, resulting in a set of criteria hereby called security framing. It seeks to make a twofold contribution: to sharpen the study of the ideational elements that underlie the construction of threats, and to advance towards a greater assessment of the audience's preferences. The case study under examination is the 2011 military intervention of the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council in Bahrain. The security framing of this case will help illuminate the dynamics at play in one of the most important recent events in Gulf politics.

Keywords : Gulf Cooperation Council; military intervention; security framing.
