RAMOS, Fabiana Pinheiro  e  NOVO, Helerina Aparecida. Government, justice and police social representation: a study in popular and middle classes in the great vitória regional. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2002, vol.4, n.1, pp. 29-37. ISSN 1516-3687.

The objective of this paper is to analyze government, justice and police social representations, involving popular and middle classes individuals of both sexes, residing in the Great Vitória Region. The data was collected throught semi-directed interviews with eighty-one middleclass and sixty popular class subjects. This work belongs to a more complex research, that had many results, because the data was submitted to quantitative and qualitative analysis. In this article we will discuss the low belief in those institutions which are responsible to sustain order and justice (government and police) and their relation with violence. Both classes, in a general way, seem to have the same concepts on the theme analyzed in this paper.
