SILVA, Ana Cecília; SILVA, Carolina  e  BONFIM, Juliano. The Social Assistance Policy: relationships between vulnerability, risk and autonomy. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2018, vol.8, n.3, pp. 88-110. ISSN 2238-152X.

The purpose of this article is to present the results of the documentary analysis done from the documents that legislate and guide the Social Assistance Policy. The analysis was based on the screening of how the expressions 'vulnerability', 'risk' and 'autonomy' emerge and are operated in this policy. The analysis points out that, initially, the expressions vulnerability and risk often appear together and without discernment. Over the years, vulnerability becomes conceptualized while the risk situation remains characterized only by examples. Autonomy is also not conceptualized, but gains more importance in 2013, where it is emphasized that it is linked to the guarantee of basic rights. We conclude with problematizations regarding the homogenization of the poor population, as well as with the possibility of universality in public policies to sustain the social inequalities that it should combat.
