DALLORSO, Nicolás Santiago. Neighborhood Conflicts in the Greater Buenos Aires Area: Social Control over Daily Life in Popular Sectors. Sociológica (Méx.) [online]. 2011, vol.26, n.73, pp. 109-152. ISSN 0187-0173.
This article deals with the role of social policies, particularly the "More Life-Comadres" Plan, based on the emergence of the so-called paradigm of insecurity. The theoretical concern consists of analyzing social policy from a particular reading: the perspective of social control, in order to identify control mechanisms in state interventions into society. From a conceptual framework that uses the contributions of Boaventura de Sousa Santos (2003) and Gosta Esping-Andersen (1993, 2000), the authors analyze the interventions of local women workers in this social program in neighborhood conflicts.
