OROZIMBO, Elizete Matias Barbosa  and  AFONSO, Maria Lúcia Miranda. Meaning of Family and the Challenge for Intersectoriality and Social Protection. Serv. Soc. Soc. [online]. 2020, n.137, pp.95-112.  Epub Feb 07, 2020. ISSN 2317-6318.

The article reports a qualitative documentary research, comparing the meanings of the family in the policies of Health, Education and Social Assistance, between 1988 and 2015, in Brazil. The research analyzed 21 documents, as a relevant discursive field, yet not exhaustive. Using Critical Discourse Analysis, it discusses the strategic place of the family in such policies: object, instrument, partner and /or subject of rights, pointing contradictions to intersectoriality in social protection.

Keywords : Family; Public policies; Health education; Social assistance; Intersectoriality.
