York Law School, CAHR and CURB Research Seminar
Polos de Cidadania, translated as Citizenship Hubs, is a research and outreach program of UFMG Law School. It aims the effectiveness of human rights and the construction of knowledge through the dialogue between the academic and the non-academic. It works with social groups and individuals with a history of exclusion and risk trajectory. The seminar will talk about one of the experiences of Polos, specifying a recent research and outreach work in the Acaba Mundo slum, in the city of Belo Horizonte. It will propose a discussion from this experience about the possibilities and limits of housing public policies in the context of extreme poverty.
