Alternative Forms of Social Control and Violence Prevention
COD Workload Description
1929P-02 30 Consistent with the description present in the research line "Violence, Crime and Public Safety", the discipline seeks to overcome a merely repressive and punitive approach to social control, and, in particular, to violence prevention actions, starting from a multidisciplinary understanding of such phenomena, as well as from the understanding that the problem of violence points to structural dimensions of social relations and spreads in its various systems and spheres of existence, with both local and regional, national, international and global scope. The scope described above includes mechanisms and processes of Transitional Justice and Restorative Justice, Preventive Public Security Policies, Public Policies of Education for Citizenship and Social Insertion, Measures of Democratic Deepening, and, likewise, criminological strands such as that of State Crimes and Crimes of the Powerful, which address the Social Harms produced by legal or illegal actions of States and large private companies and corporations, envisioning a plurality of approaches and measures of confrontation and prevention that go far beyond the repressive sphere.

CRIMINAL POLICY, JUDICIAL ACTIVISM AND PUNISHMENT SYSTEM
COD Workload Description
1929C-02 30 Starting with the delimitation of the concepts of penal system and criminal policy (also going through the debate about the foundations of the penalty), the discipline aims to study, in the space related to them and within the framework of the Democratic State of Law, both the state performance in accordance with fundamental rights as that which challenges these same rights. Having made this identification, it proceeds to examine the possibilities of judicialization of the observed violations, implying the study of judicial intervention and its limits, including the going beyond known as judicial activism. Further on, from a proposal to classify the fundamental rights of people deprived of liberty, it will investigate the effective functioning of the prison system and the need to implement a material parameter for analyzing the feasibility of incarceration (the humanitarian exequibility of incarceration). In closing, resuming the idea of judicial activism, bringing the North American experience together and evaluating the movements already carried out by our Supreme Court, it will discuss the judicial interventions that are still possible in view of the serious scenario of hyperincarceration experienced in Brazil. Furthermore, in the context of the themes of these discussions, the scope of the discipline includes approaches that intend to assess how technological advances can bring relevant impacts. Thus, for example: in a better understanding of the neuronal process involving the judicial decision, notably that of stipulation of penalties, including at the level of the effects of any interactions, such as that provided by greater or lesser empathy in relation to the defendant, to also consider multiple cuts, such as ethnic, racial, gender, sexual orientation, religious option, ideology, etc; in the possibilities of automating the process of measuring the deprivation of liberty in criminal sentences; in the implementation of new alternative penalties; in the modernization of the spaces for the execution of the deprivation of liberty sentence; etc.

Transitional Justice and Critical Theory of Human Rights
COD Workload Description
1929D-02 30 Unfolding the themes and approaches present in the research line "Violence, Crime and Public Safety", the theme of transitional justice and its importance in the preventive dimension of violence in society is revealed. Starting from the theoretical notions around the memory of victims and the confrontation with legacies of violence established in a particularly marked way in authoritarian periods or of institutional involvement in the practice of massive violence, the course intends to bring the basic aspects related to the theme, especially the notions of right to truth and memory, reparation, accountability for the practice of crimes against humanity, and institutional reforms, always analyzing such vectors in the context of experiences and concrete situations related to the international sphere and the various national contexts, especially dealing with the experiences developed in Latin America. Beyond a merely descriptive reading of the justransitional debate, the course also intends to build a critical look based on the theoretical framework of the Critical Theory of Human Rights, developed around the work of Joaquin Herrera Flores, also seeking to build conceptual bridges with the theories of coloniality and with the critical framework of Law Found on the Street.
