This article explores a series of recent theoretical contributions on the topic of security. Currently, the implementation of practices, processes and political rationalities that aim to administer, regulate and decide over human life, prove to be a constitutive part of the exercise of the political in all of its forms. Taking as a point of departure, the works of philosophers Michel Foucault and Giorgio Agamben within the field of so-called biopolitics, this article briefly reviews some recent publications dealing with current security matters such as the configuration of spaces of exception (detention centers, special economic zones, tourist resorts and refugee camps) and the implementation of biopolitical techniques and technologies in the treatment of issues such as immigration processes and pandemics. The article ends with some reflections on the implicit logic within this model of security.
