  • The Post-Cold War era was characterized by the proliferation of new threats to security and the construction of regional blocs in order to face them. This research suggests that, under such circumstances, in North America, was adopted a widening and deepening security agenda that made possible the articulation of economic security, military security and biosecurity. In this sense, the configuration of that agenda was made possible by the adoption of a neoliberal rhetoric on economic security since the implementation of NAFTA in 1994, which after 9/11 was articulated with the military security agenda given by the U.S. government in the war on terrorism , which in turn led to the adoption of a rhetoric and extraordinary biosecurity measures in the region, motivated by the anthrax bioterrorist attacks in the U.S., the SARS outbreak in Canada and the AH1N1 pandemic in Mexico .
