The present chapter pulls together the findings from the two case studies and reflects on the theoretical and methodological approach applied. In support of the central argument of the book, the chapter emphasizes that the overall result of the analysis lies not only in the importance of a clearly defined antagonistic Other for an hegemonic order to emerge. But also the creation of an unambiguous vision of a Self is needed, which is shared by the various discursive agents joining to counter the spread of either phenomenon. Comparing both discourses brings about the central insight that a hegemonic order has been established in the international drug discourse at the international level, whereas the international discourse on terrorism is devoid of such a regime.
