LIMA, Roberto Kant de; EILBAUM, Lucía  and  PIRES, Lenin. Construcción de verdad y administración de conflictos en Río de Janeiro: Una mirada sobre las reformas de las instituciones judiciales y policiales. Avá [online]. 2010, n.16, pp.1-1. ISSN 1851-1694.

In this article we discuss recent administrative reforms in the areas of criminal justice and public safety in the State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Our goal is to examine the reforms' impact on the institutional frameworks regulating administrative conflicts between the criminal justice and public safety systems. We concentrate on the case of misdemeanors because it brings to the forefront the different logics and consequent conflicts between the two systems. We work with ethnographic material collected in delegacias, Guardas Municipais and Juizados Especiais Criminais in Rio de Janeiro.

Keywords : Administrative reforms; Public safety; Criminal justice; Ethnography.
