The Analysis of Discourses Which Form a Part of the Regime of Practices of Governing: A Governmentality Studies Approach

Victoria Haidar


From the perspective of governmentality studies and a critical discourse analysis this paper looks at the interfaces between a social point of view and the mobilization of techniques of decision making. This is illustrated by the discourse analysis of the program between 1907 and 1915 of the National Department of Work in Argentina through which the governing of risks at work was organized within a liberal rational framework.
