The conclusion demonstrates how the book’s theoretical and analytical contributions are relevant beyond US airports. It provides an overview and analysis of how the Department of Homeland Security has attempted to influence global aviation security policy and the degree to which it has encountered push back from international institutions and other national security programs. It defines deterritorialized checkpoints, or geographically dispersed and politically diverse contexts in which security officials and vigilantes employ the aesthetics of transparency. The aesthetics of transparency is at work in recent attempts to control affect in public spaces beyond airports. The latest version of community policing in the United States mobilizes citizens to engage in lateral behavior detection. The chapter sketches an alternative politics of mobility, identifies areas for further research, and advocates new interdisciplinary collaborations that would enable the alternative vision proposed.
