Abstract [en]

How are we to grasp the transformation of law, authority, and border that is taking place through the current War on Terror? How are we to understand the return of public torture as a judicially sanctioned practice, presented as a just and necessary instrument to defend good society? What is the significance of Guantánamo for the future of global order? The article presents an analysis of the use of torture in the eternal War on Terror from the perspective of globalization theory, inspired in part by Agamben, Carl Schmitt, and a rereading of Foucault.
