Urgency seems to lie at the heart of both the climate change issue and right-wing populist politics. In both domains, it functions as a driving force, as a discursive and emotional practice employed to underline the issue’s relevance and timeliness. To invoke urgency and generate a sense of urgency is meant to evoke this same feeling in other actors – the feeling that ‘something needs to be done, now!’ As such, urgency is a crucial element of processes of securitisation. Urgency as a mobilizing force is strongly intertwined with imaginations about possible futures that relate to it. The invocation of urgency creates a time span between the present emergency and the on-rushing future characterised by ambivalence and insecurity. The goal of this talk, thus, is twofold: to understand how urgency functions as a tool of mobilization in general and to explore its anti-democratic potential in particular.
