Sur le rapport torture et migration

Une réflexion philosophique/politique

Marie-Claire Caloz-Tschopp    Université de Gèneve, Suisse    



Describing the relationship between torture and migration means examining its unpredictable foundations, its major civilizational challenges. In the relationship between capitalism and torture and torture and migration, a philosophical/political reflection proposes to identify an aporia: what happens to violence going to extremes (Balibar) inscribed in the self-destruction of humanity by itself? Torture, like an octopus extends its tentacles, poses new enigmas to struggles, knowledge, human rights. The general challenge is to radicalize critical work, to learn to think about extremes, to redesign the relationship to violence, to identify new forms of torture and the conditions for struggle and survival. To experience the democratic vertigo rooted in the report on torture and migration in Europe and elsewhere is to invent, on fragile soil, insurrectional democratic policies of counter-violence and civility.
