SCISLESKI, Andrea Cristina Coelho et al. Youth and poverty: the construction of potentially dangerous subjects. Arq. bras. psicol. [online]. 2012, vol.64, n.3, pp. 19-34. ISSN 1809-5267.

This article aims to problematize how the subjectivation modes of young subjects have been constituted, regarding the articulation between psychological practices and health, social assistance and justice policies. It is understood that despite the discourse of protection that is promoted in the core of these politics, inversely, it is also produced a succession of practices that perpetrates a normalized and punitive character towards the life of young subjects who had their rights violated. The conducting line for this analysis emanates from the knowledge-power practices presented in the case of Highlander, a teenager in conflict with law that was target with fifteen gunshots and has been attended by diverse sectors in social-educational measurement arena. To question the insertion of youth population in the government mechanisms and the practices that act over them may be a way to provoke displacements towards the place that psychology occupies in the public politics scenario.

Palavras-chave : Youth in conflict with the law; Public policies; Process of subjectivation.
