Title: Criminal Law as a Constitutive Strategy: The Colombian Case
Author: Vanegas, Farid Samir Benavides
Subject(s): Criminal Law
Colombia
Subaltern
Subjectivities
Abstract: In this text I analyze the role criminal law has played in the production of subaltern subjectivities in Colombia. Criminal law and criminological discourse have been important to control subaltern groups and to constitute their identities. Colombian elites have appealed to criminal law to solve their social problems, in a strategy that has been labeled as law’s symbolic efficiency or as “penal efficienticism”.
