Biopolitiche di eccezione e pratiche di resistenza nelle favelas di Rio de Janeiro

Roberto Malighetti


The paper discusses the biopolitical strategies of marginalization founded on the proclamation of the state of exception and on the exercise of violence as an instrument of power. It invites to consider Rio de Janeiro favelas as paradigmatic cases to probe into the practices of resistance to the policies of inclusive exclusion managed by State governmentality and by criminal normation. It considers the favelas as laboratories of new forms of subjectivity, which rethink the relations among the individual, the State and the Nation and promote new models of citizenship based on the participation to redesign the economical, political and social system.
