One of the main priorities of Stephen Harper's government since it came to power in 2006 has been to preserve what it defines as A Safe and Secure Canada. Thus, it has remained in line with the radical security measures adopted by his predecessor following the September 11 attacks, turning them into a central and sustained feature of the country's policy but also breaking up with the traditional representations of Canada as being less belligerent than its southern neighbour. This volume, which has emerged from discussions held during the September 25, 2009 conference on Canada's Security, Identity(ies) and Territory(ies) (Universite Stendhal - Grenoble 3), presents the thoughts of eight researchers from a wide variety of backgrounds and disciplines, who have reflected upon the consequences of Canada's security policy. Ten years after September 11, it attests to the issues that are still directly or indirectly linked to the attacks, but also to Canada's new areas of concern in terms of security. Depuis son arrivee au pouvoir en 2006, l'une des priorites du gouvernement de Stephen Harper a ete de preserver ce qu'il definit comme A Safe and Secure Canada, poursuivant un virage securitaire amorce par son predecesseur suite aux attentats du 11 septembre 2001 et instaurant ainsi dans la duree une politique qui semble rompre avec les representations traditionnelles d'un Canada moins belliqueux que son voisin americain. A partir d'une discussion amorcee lors de la journee d'etudes Securite, Identite(s) et Territoire(s) du 25 septembre 2009 (Universite Stendhal - Grenoble 3), cet ouvrage presente les reflexions de huit chercheurs de disciplines et d'horizons tres differents qui se sont interroges sur les consequences de cette politique. Dix ans apres le 11 septembre, il fait etat des enjeux qui sont encore directement ou indirectement lies a cet evenement, mais aussi des nouvelles preoccupations du Canada en matiere de securite.
