Resumen

ESTEVEZ, Ariadna. Violence against women and the human rights crisis: from the war on drugs to the necropolitical wars. Rev. interdiscip. estud. género Col. Méx. [online]. 2017, vol.3, n.6, pp.69-100. ISSN 2395-9185.  https://doi.org/10.24201/eg.v3i6.142.

The article contends that human rights organizations and their reports tend to dismiss the gender continuities of criminal violence in the human rights crisis. Consequently, it develops the idea of necropolitical wars as a type of conflict that simultaneously explains criminal and sexual violence as part of a contínuum of violence for the securing of criminal markets and the commodification of women’s bodies. Using Mexico as a case study, it offers a typology of necropolitical wars: the war for the necropolitical governmentalization of the State and the war for the dispossession of women’s bodies. While these wars have different aims -co-opting and reconfiguring the state, on the one hand; and dispossessing women of their bodies, on the other- they share a common feature: a dysfunctional, permanently corrupt and deliberately deadly legal-spatial site that secures the impunity of their power technologies: massacre, feminicide and forced disappearance. By analyzing violence through the lens of necropolitical wars, violence against women becomes clearly visible.

Palabras llave : sexual violence; feminicide; forced disappearance; dispossession; necropolitics.
