Faire la « guerre contre la drogue ». Relations asymétriques et adoption d’un régime répressif

Abstract : At first glance, the adoption of a repressive agenda against drug trafficking by dependent countries appears as a clear sign of the influence of hegemonic states over world affairs. However, even if this asymmetry is real, the importation of repressive norms and law enforcement instruments is intrinsically linked to internal political and bureaucratic dynamics. Based on a case study of the progressive involvement of the Colombian state in the war against drugs from the late 1970s to the early 1990s, this paper proposes a reflection on the ways in which internal politics and international relations can be intertwined. The method of analysis essentially rests on retracing links between the international and the emergence, politicization, and transformation of drugs into a public problem—that is an assessment of the relationship between endogenous games, on the one hand, and international processes and resources on the other.
