RIFIOTIS, Theophilos. As delegacias especiais de proteção à mulher no Brasil e a «judiciarização» dos conflitos conjugais. Soc. estado. [online]. 2004, vol.19, n.1, pp.85-119. ISSN 0102-6992.

Social movements that fight against impunity in cases of "conjugal violence" are, at the same time, local and global movements whose transversal dimension represents a great challenge and shows the need for comparative research among local solutions. The Women's Police Department is a dispositif of the judiciary police implemented in Brazil as part of the fight against impunity and for the extension of access to justice. In this article, we present a rereading of the ethnographic research conducted at the Women's Police Department of João Pessoa (in the State of Paraiba, Brazil), based on the study of Canadian policies and experiences in Quebec, particularly at the Montreal Urban Community Police Department (SPCUM). In sum, this text is an essay on the "particularity" of a Brazilian experience and aims to contribute to the discussion of that type of "judiciarization" process.

Keywords : conjugal violence; women's police department; justice; police; judiciarizaton.
