AGUINSKY, Beatriz and CAPITAO, Lúcia. Violence and socioeducation: an ethical Inquiry based on the contributions of Restorative Justice. Rev. katálysis [online]. 2008, vol.11, n.2, pp.257-264. ISSN 1982-0259. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1414-49802008000200011.
This study analyzes contemporary violence and the social construction of prejudice in relation to youth in conflict with the law. It exposes socio-education deprived of liberty in its punitive and custodial premises that produce a system with a weak capacity to fulfill its service. The Restorative Justice proposal is presented as a possibility to advance the Statute of the Child and Adolescent by instituting democratic socio-educational practices within the service network of public policies for children and youth, establishing co-responsibilities in institutional interventions, from the perspective of a System of Guarantee of Rights for youths deprived of liberty.
