...to what Giorgio Agamben ( 1998 ) refers to as “bare life.” The citizen of “normal politics,” derived, for instance, from Aristotle’s conception, engages in political debate and decision making. In Foucault’s argument, sovereign power revolves around the governance of populations and biological life rather than political life. The subject of politics is no longer the potential agency of the citizen, but the management of life itself. In this respect, the founding political image of the West has shifted from “Athens to Auschwitz” ( Agamben 2004 :169). Auschwitz...

...clandestine programs of so-called extraordinary rendition through which suspected terrorists were believed to be transferred to regimes suspected of using torture. One group of scholars drew upon the work on the exception by Carl Schmitt , the more recent Italian political philosopher Giorgio Agamben , and Foucault in discussions of how these practices accentuated the tension between security and liberty at the heart of liberal discourse ( Huysmans 2006 ; Jabri 2006 ; Neal 2006 ; Walker 2006 ). Another body of work continued the Foucauldian concern with...

...such as in borderlands or military bases overseas, human rights are threatened. The advancement of universal human rights may well depend on strong state sovereignty, not its erosion” ( 2005 :38). The counterargument is that a space of exception (using the term coined by Giorgio Agamben ) such as Guantánamo Bay is a product of a territorial state. Taking a different tack, Derek Gregory ( 2006 ) argues that we should not simply accept Guantánamo Bay as a space of exception, but see it instead as a space of struggle, where arguments can (and should) be...

Furthermore, Foucault's work and that of Giddens ( 1984 ) led to the development of a new branch of knowledge, surveillance studies , which is of core importance on an international level. Ultimately based on the philosophical findings of Jeremy Bentham's Panopticon (...
