Dispositivo das drogas e governo da vida

From a Social Psychology perspective in dialogue with the theories of Michel Foucault and Giorgio Agamben, the purpose of this paper is to address how drugs are constituted as an explanation for the murders of homeless people, building practices and discourses related to government of life and death in the cities. The material analyzed consists of media texts and public documents produced between July 2010 and August 2012 that address such murders. We analyze how the dispositive of drugs formulates an ambiguity and complexity important for the government of the homeless from the construction of those oppositions: criminal or social vulnerability. From this analysis we seek to contribute critically to public policies that aim the various modes of existing in the city, thinking urban spaces, modes of government and the processes of subjectivity, from the analysis of the ambiguity and complexity produced around the dispositive of drugs.
