BONAMIGO, Irme Salete et al. Circulation of children and adolescents in network by the Program for the Eradication of Child Labour (PETI). Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.spe, pp. 1345-1362. ISSN 1808-4281.

The Program for the Eradication of Child Labour (PETI) is a social policy that aims to protect children and adolescents from seven to 15 years, and contribute to their integral development. This article discusses the implications of PETI in daily life of children, adolescents and their families, based on research conducted in Chapecó (SC) in 2013. Data were produced by means of monitoring the activities in the program and interviews with three children, an adolescent, their families and professionals. The Actor-Network Theory was used as theoretical- methodological device for the development of the study, whose results indicate the importance of PETI to the participants due to the possibility of coexistence in space considered safe, with activities that contribute to the social, emotional and educational development. However, the program does not guarantee the full participation of children and adolescents in situations of child labor, because they fail to attend it when they need help in their responsible tasks within the family. It analyzes the network that has been woven not possible an effective transformation as to eradication of child labor, requiring the connection of other actors so that parents can work, be cared home and your kids safe.

Keywords : child labor; actor-network theory; PETI; social policies.
