German term or phrase:die Inszenierung der Drohung
From a report in connection with a survey of corporate social responsibility:
Zum anderen beruht sie aber auch auf dem Drohpotenzial, das sich aus wirtschaftlicher Globalisierung ergibt, besser gesagt auf der „Inszenierung der Drohung“.
The latter is a quote from sociologist Ulrich Beck that - as far as I can make out - is taken from 1996's Die Subpolitik der Globalisierung.
I have tried in vain to find the English equivalent. If there is an official English quote, I obviously need to use it. Can anybody help? I am not as such looking for ideas on how to translate it. ;-)
