This paper examines humanitarian action and promotion of private entrepreneurship as an arena where new technologies of subjectification are deployed within polycentric power relations. How health and economic welfare technologies affect social relationships? How are these technologies connected with the experience of inequalities? Can they create new forms of identity? In this text I explore these questions by the analysis of the processes of reconfiguration of welfare experience, subjectivity and control in urban intercultural contexts of Arica, northern Chile.
