BICALHO, Pedro Paulo Gastalho de; ROSSOTTI, Bruno Giovanni de Paula Pereira  and  REISHOFFER, Jefferson Cruz. The research in preserving order institutions. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2016, vol.6, n.spe, pp. 85-97. ISSN 2238-152X.

This article aims to analyze the challenges of research in correctional institutions using the question of (dis)trust as an analytical vector. The production of a pervasive feeling of insecurity is the ultimate objective of such institutions. It is entrenched by processes of subjection that use the spread of uncertainty as the principal vector of social control and the repression of specific social groups classified as “dangerous”. Theory and practice, research and intervention, knower and known: components of a territory of traditional dichotomies in scientific research. We examine the questions that emerge from a ResearchWITH practice in institutions where relationships are determined by an imbalance of power. Such research perspective is not only possible but necessary.

Keywords : Scientific Research; Power; Correctional Institutions.
