Chapter Three examines Susan Choi’s novel The Foreign Student and the UN Convention Against Torture together to educe a formulation of the “right to the security of person.” It demonstrates how the right to human security deconstructs the sovereign state authority by which war and torture “work over” the vulnerable body in pain.
