This chapter examines the interconnections between organizational communication and security. Using metadiscursive and topical lenses, it reviews how scholars have used organizational communication concepts to study security-related topics. It identifies the contexts, texts, artifacts, and events that these scholars have engaged. A focus on organizational communication helps explain how the meanings of security are created, maintained, or transformed in crucial meso-level and institutional settings. The chapter presents a case study of how organizational communication concepts can illuminate opaque facets of the formulation, circulation, and influence of national security strategy documents.
