Necropolitics is a theory about violence and the nation-state. It refers to the absolute power of the state to kill, to allow to live, or to dehumanize people. This talk will look at Filipino bodies as seen from the period of the Philippine-American War and also today, as the victims of President Duterte's drug war.
