The art of arms (not) being governed: means of violence and shifting territories in the borderworlds of Myanmar

Routledge

“Controlling the means of violence occurs via turbulent combinations of technical objects, techniques and rationalities that relate to four main domains: narcotics eradication; institutionalisation; ethnonationality; and humanitarian security. Processes and practices through which attempts to control the means of violence are made entail alternative strategies to re-generate spatial organisational control and shape multiple shifting territories. Empirically exploring a highly under-researched case, the paper provides a view of the diffused character of controlling the means of violence and its mutually constitutive relations with territory, while illuminating also the role of weapons, other technical objects, and techniques.”

Francesco Buscemi (T.wai & Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna) is author of the article “The art of arms (not) being governed: means of violence and shifting territories in the borderworlds of Myanmar” for Routledge.
