DIAZ ISENRATH, Cecilia. Governmentalization of biodiversity: a study of control mechanisms. Rev. Pilquen. secc. cienc. soc. [online]. 2018, vol.21, n.3, pp.45-54. ISSN 1851-3123.

In this paper, I analyze how environmental issues transform in socio-environmental issues inscribed in national and international agreements. I problematize, from the point of view of what Foucault called neoliberal governmentality , specialized knowledges and procedures of control that, since the 1990s, have as correlate the constitution of biodiversity as object for possible knowledges and a series of new domains of knowledge, such as traditional knowledge associated with genetic resources. Over the course of this study, I examine interweaving s between scientific concepts, administrative knowledges, and inter and intra-state and inter-state norms, such as the Convention on Biological Diversity, the Nagoya Protocol and the National Biodiversity Strategy.

Keywords : Governmentality; Biodiversity; Genetic Resources; Traditional Knowledge.
