Social and Historical Approaches Regarding Street Children in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) in the Context of the Transition to Democracy.
Filho, Gisalio Cerqueira; Neder, Gizlene
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v8 n1 p11-29 Feb 2001
This review examines the social literature on Brazilian street children to determine causal factors. Stressing the socioeconomic aspects of poverty and social exclusion, the analyses identify three basic themes: the family, high failure rates in school, and child/adolescent labor. The role of Brazil's economic crisis of the late 1970s and political transition from military dictatorship are also discussed. (JPB)
