Cooperation Project 2
Coordinator: Prof. José Carlos Moreira da Silva Filho
The project “The Hidden Matrix of Violence in Contemporary Times: Crisis of Otherness, Morale and Ethics” addresses violence from different disciplinary and theoretical perspectives. Additionally, topics related to violence, as a broad phenomenon, including human rights, human dignity, moral behavior and religious practices are addressed.
On that line, the following issues will be investigated: incarceration policies and violation of rights; the consequences of the antidemocratic discourse in the production of violence; the concept of human dignity in everyday practices and the relationship between religious views and practices and morally virtuous behavior. Under a practical point of view, this project will investigate ideas to improve indicators in social vulnerable regions, such as psychosocial interventions for the prevention of childhood abuse.
The analysis of these phenomena calls for an interdisciplinary perspective involving researchers from different graduate programs, such as: Criminal Sciences, Philosophy, Law, Psychology, Social Sciences, Social Work and Theology.
