Summary
The security policies that have been introduced since 1985 in connection with international football matches are presently splitting into two major trends: the first one, which has been prevailing in the 1980s and 1990s, takes its inspiration in the guiding principles of the proactive management of risk and the globalising definition of security threats. It is at the origin of a network of control devices that is definitely endangering the football fans’ civil rights and liberties. The second trend, which has been emerging in the 2000s, follows the same principles during the preparatory stages but gives a greater credit to the human factor when policing football fans on the field
