Abstract [en]

LET THE DIFFERENCE BE. Taking my point of departure from a school’s neglecting of the harassment of two Roma children (eller Taking my point of departure from the neglecting of the harassment of two Roma children by their school), I ask how it is possible to be placed outside an order that is supposed to support and protect all children regardless of their social, cultural, and ethnic background. The article is divided in three parts. In order to understand how it is possible to expose children to structural violence, I illuminate how it is possible to reduce some people to non-humans, less worthy than others, with the help of Agambens understanding of bio-politics and the making of the non-human. There after I explore the foundations of Agamben’s terra ethica. An ethics that takes us beyond responsibility and dignity not only erases the division between worthy and non worthy beings, it also makes the question of identity to a non-question. With this ethics in mind, I return to the case of the Roma children, and arrive at the conclusion that instead of clinging on to an epistemological conformity that produces an order that actually makes exclusion possible, we ought to let the difference be.
