Neoliberal Policing Regimes of Imminent Violability

(p.165) 6 The Broken Windows of Rosa Ramos
Feminists Rethink the Neoliberal State

This chapter considers how “broken windows” policing as both philosophy and practice emerged alongside and also facilitated major transformations of the neoliberal political economy. It further proposes the concept of imminent violability as an analytic through which this vulnerability might be comprehended within the racial, spatial, and ultimately gendered dimensions of neoliberal securitization. By thinking within and across scales, from the regulation of bodies and behavior to the refashioning of spaces for global capital, it argues that imminent violability can serve as a radical feminist critique linking racism, capital accumulation, and the increasingly commonplace vulnerability to state violence most keenly experienced by poor and working-class communities of color across the United States.

Keywords:   broken windows policing, neoliberalism, racism, spatial, global capital, securitization, imminent violability
