We live in a historic moment in which globalization is the watchword. The search for globalized relations requires contact with other countries and values internationalization. This internationalization triggers connections in the fields of educational, social, economic, legal, among others. In this partnership between globalization and internationalization that are sometimes complementary, sometimes synonymous, there is simultaneously another partnership: power-knowledge. It is in this mood of globalization / internationalization, power-knowledge, that the Science without Borders Program (SwB) is idealized and politically instituted by the Brazilian government in higher education institutions. The objective of this article is to reflect on the perceived governmentality effects in the discourses produced on the SwB in the enunciative sequences (ESs) of the corpus listed for this article. As a methodology, we used bibliographical research, documentary research, narrative interviews (BAUER & GASKEL, 2002) and archegenealogical method (FOUCAULT, 1999, 2008a, 2014a). Our discussion has theoretical support in Foucault (1995, 1999, 2008a, 2008b, 2008a, 2014b, 2015a, 2015b), Veiga-Neto (1999), Veyne (2011), Bauman (1999), among others. We observed that the effects of subjection in the ESs analyzed depart from the propositions suggested by the SwB, which diverge from the difficulty of those involved in the SwB with the use of the English language and, consequently, the obstacle in effectively participating in research and extension.
