Abstract: When considering modalities of citizenship making, we must examine the criteria by which nations and states regulate processes of selection and the relations of power politics used to normalize and adjust subjects rendering them loyal, governable citizens. In our times, the State’s capacity to define cultural identity within very explicit and oftentimes implicit socio-economic contexts and to construct and manipulate social processes enables it to increasingly determine the lives and activities of humans as subjects.
