Title THE LIMITS OF GLOBAL GOVERNANCE: GOVERNMENTALITY AS AN ANALYTICAL ALTERNATIVE
Os limites da governança global: a governamentalidade como alternativa analítica
 
Creator Veloso, Vitor Furtado Jerônimo

Governança global. Governamentalidade. Debate.
 
Description In this present article, I seek to demonstrate the possible contributions that the concept of “governmentality” can bring to the International Relations area, specifically, in the discussion about governance. To this end, I map the use of the concept of global governance in the area, its different uses and how it fits in the literature. Subsequently, I draw some criticism of the term, either because of its conceptual breadth, which supposedly caused its “emptying”, or for its ability to explain the changes in international politics at different historical times. Thus, despite its important conceptual contribution and research agenda, global governance has found certain limits in explaining the different interactions between public and private actors. Based on this, I bring some important contributions of governmentality studies to International Relations, and about the possibilities of research and questioning that they can bring. The aim of this article is to bring a little more of the debate “governance versus governmentality” so little approached and discussed in Brazil. Therefore, I aim to foster interest in research using such a theoretical framework, thinking of “governmentality” not as a way of “overcoming” governance, but as an alternative analytical lens for the international sphere. 
No presente artigo, busco demonstrar as possíveis contribuições que o conceito de “governamentalidade” pode trazer para a área de Relações Internacionais, especificamente, na discussão sobre governança. Para tanto, faço um mapeamento da utilização do conceito de governança global na área, suas diferentes utilizações, e como ele se insere na literatura. Posteriormente, traço algumas críticas ao termo, seja por sua amplitude conceitual, que supostamente causou seu “esvaziamento”, ou por sua capacidade de explicar as mudanças ocorridas na política internacional em diferentes momentos históricos. Sendo assim, apesar de sua importante contribuição conceitual e como agenda de pesquisa, a governança global encontrou certos limites em explicar as diferentes interações entre os atores públicos e privados. Pautado nisso, trago algumas contribuições dos estudos da governamentalidade para as Relações Internacionais, e sobre as possibilidades de pesquisa e questionamento que eles podem trazer. Sendo assim, o objetivo do presente artigo é trazer um pouco mais do debate “governança versus governamentalidade” tão pouco abordado e discutido no Brasil. Portanto, viso fomentar o interesse por pesquisas utilizando tal referencial teórico pensando a “governamentalidade” não como uma forma de “superar” a governança, mas como uma lente analítica alternativa para a esfera internacional.Recebido em: setembro de 2019Aceito em: março de 2020
