Short description:
The Center of the Study of Violence (NEV/USP) was created during the democratic transition, in 1987, and it is a Center for Research of the University of São Paulo. One of the NEV/USP characteristic is the interdisciplinarity of its researches, which turns around a common theoretical question: the persistence of serious Human Rights violations during the process of democratic consolidation. NEV/USP develops research projects, courses of extension and activities directed to the promotion and protection of the human rights. Currently the NEV works with three lines of research, innovation and dissemination: a) Democracy, Human Rights and violence: an integrated analysis; b) Human Rights monitoring in Brazil and particularly in São Paulo; c) Democracy, Human Rights and public security: comparative studies. For this, it counts on a team of researchers and research assistants, graduated in the areas of sociology, political science, anthropology, history, laws, psychology, public health and statistics.
