Security assemblages exist at the intersection of the population and the milieu. This presentation explains how the apparatus of security problematised space in such a way that it justified a reduction in the role of government in the name of better care and cost savings. I examine the emergence of the UK’s public health policy Caring for People in the 1980s, which played a significant role is reorganizing social care by promoting individual choice in lieu of institutionalisation. While the policy’s stated aims were to improve the lives of those who depend on care, the result was a greater burden on individuals and less investment in infrastructures of care.
