HERNANDEZ-CRUZ, Diego-Armando  y  PELAYO-PEREZ, Mariana-Betzabeth. Dispossession Necropolitics, an Offensive Against the People. URVIO [online]. 2020, n.28, pp.118-133. ISSN 1390-4299.

The objective of this article is to analyze and explain the context of violence and the despotic exercise of government power that, through an organic relationship with drug trafficking groups, dispossessed thousands of families in the state of Nayarit, Mexico, in the period 2011-2017. The term “necropolitics of dispossession” is proposed, following the theoretical routes associated with necropower and dispossession, together with the analysis of testimonial narrative. Journalistic and documentary research works are taken as a reference, where citizens reveal, based on their experiences, how the government of the state operates. As a result, new theoretical-conceptual elements are found, which contribute to the discussion and understanding of little perceptible relations of the States with drug trafficking. It is concluded that the necropolitics of dispossession favors the accumulation of local capital and the concentration of power through violence, terror and death, strengthening the constitution of narco-states.

Palabras clave : capital; bodies; dispossession; death; drug trafficking; power; violence.
