On Justice, Insecurity, and the Right to the City in Brazil’s Oldest Metropolis
This paper looks at discourse about violence and security in the city of Salvador, in the Northeast of Brazil, to cast light on the ways in which a steady increase in violent crime has reshaped its residents’ views of justice and of rights to the city. I argue that a security framework not only attends to the public meaning of justice, but has increasingly come to modulate the experiences and values that underpin ideas about a good life.
