The Center for the Study of Violence of the University of São Paulo is selecting eight post-doctoral fellows to develop research projects in the referred program, with duration of one to three years.
The objective of the research program is to analyze how the legitimacy of key institutions for democracy is constructed or jeopardized, by exploring the contacts between citizens and civil servants from local public services in representative areas of the city of São Paulo.
