CHAVEZ, Jorge; HONTOU, Cecilia  and  PIQUINELA, Pablo. The proximity public policies: tensions between the boarding of social vulnerability and scientific evidence. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2016, vol.6, n.2, pp. 5-24. ISSN 2238-152X.

In Uruguay, policies aimed at proximity to vulnerable sectors are being implemented. In the following article we present research conducted during 2014 in "Uruguay Crece Contigo" (Uruguay grows with you). We conducted an ethnographic approach through participant observation, field journaling and semistructured interviews in the city of Montevideo. We describe what is prescribed by politics, characterizing the emergence of the figure of the proximity operator and we located this figure whitin a socio-technical network in which it participates. We conclude that local operators are key players in the relationship between the state and vulnerable sectors of the population. At both levels involving proximity, data is extracted from the policy: the evidence. In the feedback of evidence to public policy relegates the possibility of building policies that address in an accurate way the living conditions of the population.
