ABSTRACT
This article attempts to provide some keynotes in trying to understand the construction of the Spanish State and its Basque terrorist outlaw. The Nation State’s institutional discourses such as the ZEN plan (1983), Ararteko’s analysis (2009) or Ertzaintza’s antiterrorist website (2011) become indispensable tools for the community’s construction. These texts lead to an interpretation of discipline, sovereign power and governmental management through the subjec(tifica)tion technologies that build the outlaw as Homo Sacer.
