TRENTINI, Florencia  y  SORROCHE, Santiago. Rethinking Socio-Environmental Conflicts from an Eco-Governmentality in Friction. Estud. polit., Medellín [online]. 2016, n.49, pp.132-147. ISSN 0121-5167.

This article seeks to make a contribution to the analysis of socio-environmental conflicts from the theoretical and methodological framework of political ecology, and calls into question the global-local connections. It is important to point out that the local and the global nourish each other, and, for this reason, none of them can be understood without the existence of its correlative. In this context, the article employs Nancy Fraser's proposals of global governmentality (2003), Ferguson's and Gupta's (2002) concept of transnational governmentality, and analyses them with the aid of the concepts of friction (Tsing, 2005) and place (Escobar, 2010). The author presents a theoretical approach to address the socio-environmental conflicts and proposes to eliminate the asymmetry between the ''global'' and ''local'' in order to rethink the current conflicts in Latin America from an eco-governmentality in friction. This approach provides an account of multiple relations of power and inequality, and the manner in which they operate at a transnational, national and local level enabling particular ways of exploitation, appropriation, distribution, regulation, activism and resistance, whose daily practice produce policies beyond the ones established and defined by global programs and models.
