PINHEIRO, Jordana de Carvalho  and  SOUSA, Sônia Margarida Gomes. Law and society: tensions and contradictions about child's place. Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2020, vol.20, n.49, pp. 641-653. ISSN 2175-1390.

In terms of the law, from the point of view of the law as a subject of rights, children still face the severe distance that separates them from the elaboration and implementation of effective public policies and the full guarantee of their rights. Thus, this article proposes to deepen the problematization and to contribute with the construction of necessary knowledge to grasp and scientifically understand the psychosocial phenomenon of relations between society, justice and children. Also proposes to present a critical analysis of the distance that legal constructions maintain with the factual reality, of effective protection of these children, having as a reference of analysis and theoretical basis Vygostky Socio-Historical Psychology, a critical perspective that surpasses the neutrality, positivism and idealism of traditional psychologies.

Keywords : Psychology; Childhood; Public Policies.
