Abstract. Under the Foucaultian approach (1978, 2006, 2007 and 2008), the present work proposes to analyze possible links between elements of the governmental neoliberal colombian state which, in conjunction with the agency of international and national organisms, turned the rights of the Forced Internal Displacement victims in practices such as social risk management with the purpose of optimizing public cost and effective economic administration. The use of population as the grid for measuring persons and groups to make them vulnerable, fragile or under risk medicalizes the socio-political conflict, and sanitarizes the social dimension of life as Foucault (1978, 2006, 2007, 2008) and Fassin (2004, 2008) have stated in association with the Making of Public Health. These practices that encounter several biopolitics, work as a concern for the life of extremely poor people, making possible the emergence of the displaced subject by uses of trauma, victims and vulnerability
