Abstract:This paper is about the geopolitics of animal health governance. Through a biosecurity event in South Africa's pig sector we examine changes in the way the governance of disease risk is configuring intra‐national spaces. Our case suggests an emerging geopolitics of animal health, one that is defined not by differences between nations but by a more complex patchwork of ‘secure’ and ‘unruly spaces’.
