ARANDA, Gilberto  y  OVANDO, Cristian. Notions of safety and control to Northern Border Plan: an expression of teichopolitics. [online]. 2018, vol.13, n.1, pp.67-92. ISSN 1909-3063.

Teichopolitics is a current expression of the segmented globalization, which not only raises the erection of walls. In Chile's case, this policy was manifested in the 1970's through the mining of limiting areas as defensive mechanisms for a foreign invasion and today, by the Northern Border plan. Employing this security mechanism, the State guarantees the continuity of financial flows consonant with the economic policy of market opening, although under a greater supervision that at the same time allows for the control the flow of people and, with particular attention, to contain the illegal traffic of goods and narcotics. The State also express cultural consequences for the otherness that must be taken into account. This article aims to review the implementation of this plan as an expression of Teichopolitics, for this end, a revision of concepts and terms is made from a cons-tructivist perspective. Also, it investigates in some aspects of the content of the public policy that it involves. It is concluded that the evaluation of the program gives more account of the actual investment than of the impact that these investments have had on statistics of drug seizures and police procedures associated with illicit drug trafficking. This is also reflected in the reports and analyses from the Ministry of the Interior that only declares the level of investment in equipment and police resources.
