CALVEIRO, Pilar. Disappearance and Governmentality in México. Hist. graf [online]. 2021, n.56, pp.17-52.  Epub 23-Feb-2021. ISSN 1405-0927.

The mechanism and devices that are used in enforced disappearance are modified according to the forms of the State and government. In the last 70s in México, this practice was articulated to a populist governmentality with a strong centralized and authoritarian State that used differential policies for the treatment of dissent, from legal and illegal forms of repression to the selection of co-opt practices and even the creation of consensus. As of 2008 this practice was inscribed in a neoliberal governmentality in which the State, penetrated by large legal and illegal corporations, became a fragmentary structure with relatively autonomous local powers which may be strongly penetrated by global criminal networks. The articulation State-criminal makes violence to appear as private but it should be thought as private-public and, in this context, the distinction between the practices of disappearance and forced disappearance is diffused.
