GUIMARAES, Iracema Brandão. Peripheries and territories under the combined effects of precarization: some tendencies. Cad. CRH [online]. 2011, vol.24, n.spe1, pp.089-104. ISSN 0103-4979.

This paper discusses some aspects of the world of labor, considering it as a structuring dimension of social life and seeking to realize how it brings and reproduces its effects more broadly. The deregulation of labor and its corresponding rights, triggered in Brazil since the eighties, made workers become more dependent on welfare policies and, more specifically, on the primary processes of integration, "close protection", and bonds, suggesting the question 'to what extent do these bonds still constitute, prioritarily, the key elements of reproduction in urban areas on the periphery. It is shown that there are significant changes, focusing on the relation family-community, located on the axis of the primary integration, and one discusses some of their effective scope and effects based on the actual thesis analyzing such issues. This paper goes on to theoretical and methodological issues and, in addition, uses empirical data to illustrate some of these scope and effects, addressing them through the notion of territory of precariousness located among the population of workers and non-working people living in peripheric neighborhoods in Salvador, Bahia.

Keywords : periphery; work; housing; family; Salvador.
