The securizationde la ciudad : politicas publicas, acciones colectivas y praticas individuales en una metropolis latinoamericana : Bogota (Colombia)

Abstract : This research analyzes the actions of public institutions, community-based organizations and ordinary people intended to address problems of insecurity in Bogotá (Colombia), mainly in poor neighborhoods. Although the context of insecurity is studied, this research is focused on the actions of securitization in this city, i.e., actions that give life to the process of building urban security. It starts showing the agreements and the divergences about security issues between the national and the local levels of government. It observes that representations´ people about crime problems in poor neighborhoods are permeable to the public controversies about security which use to adopt a very polarized character in ideological terms. In one extreme, the people appropriate this debates in order to justify authoritarian attitudes or, on the contrary, to vindicate other senses of security based on the respect of human rights, like in the case of social organizations. Regardless of the ideological positions, the analysis of everyday practices shows that living in Bogotá involve to exercise and to be submitted to a series of surveillance practices which shape a type of sociability that can be called securonormativy. The research remarks that the actions of securitization are embedded in the everyday appropriation of space, in the conceptions of space, the territorial disputes and the creation of meanings of place.
