Abstract

RAMOS, Silvia  and  CARRARA, Sérgio. The problem of violence against homosexuals: the articulation between activism and academy in public policy making. Physis [online]. 2006, vol.16, n.2, pp. 185-205. ISSN 0103-7331.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-73312006000200004.

Violence against homosexuals is a central theme for activism and for governments and the media as well. This paper aims to analyze the main aspects of the agendas of homosexual movements, that is, of their discourses and practices which influence on public policies to tackle violence. We are particularly interested in identifying the relations between activism and academy within these processes and the way that, based on such relation, a certain type of knowledge is being produced in Brazil.

Keywords : Violence; homosexuality; public policies.
