Youth and Violence in Brazil: Exploring Youth’s Narratives about Street Violence Related to Drug and Social Order in Brazil’s Most Violent City

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Studies carried out by the Sangari Institut, which analyze homicide cases registered in the Brazilian Information system of Mortality (SIM), show two important conclusions: 1.) young males play an important role in the increase of violence in recent years; 2.) violence is migrating to small and medium-sized cities in Brazil. These two conclusions are the initial basis on which this research project focuses.

This project focuses on a qualitative analysis of youths’ perception on street violence as it relates to drugs and their involvement in street violence. Another focus of this research is to examine how migration and economic growth have been affecting the city of Maceió through the increase of youth street violence.

The research is based on an explanatory qualitative study. And methodology consists of interviews and participative observation, in-depth case studies of youth and their violence trajectory. During individual interviews with male youth (15 - 24 years of age), biographical information will be collected as well as the effect and the role that street violence plays for them. Fieldwork will concentrate on personal interviews to elicit information on the particularities of youth violence, especially in the perception of youths, and the role that violence plays for them.
