AbstractO autor toma, neste artigo, o conceito de "sujeição criminal" (Misse, 1999), visando contribuir para uma melhor compreensão de como opera a categoria "bandido" na sociedade brasileira. Nesse sentido, recupera temas contemporâneos da chamada "teoria do sujeito" bem como das abordagens clássicas sobre ator e agência, rótulo e estigma, para melhor definir o conjunto de questões envolvidas em sua contribuição.<br>In this article the author recovers the concept of "criminal subjection" (Misse, 1999), to contribute to a better understanding of how operates the category of "bandido" (bandit) in Brazilian society. In this sense, the contemporary themes of the so-called "theory of the subject" are discussed as well as the classical approaches of actor and agency, label and stigma, to better define the range of issues involved in its contribution.

Trafficking and Fragility in West AfricaRalston, Laura (World Bank Group, Washington, DC, 2014-12-03)Trafficking is an emerging concern in West Africa. In 2011, 17 percent of all cocaine consumed in Europe -- 21 tons -- passed through the region, for a retail value of US$1.7 billion. This paper discusses the evolution of trafficking in the region and provides estimates of the size and value of trafficking flows to demonstrate the significance of this illegal activity. Although this topic is gaining increasing attention, less attention has been has been paid to how trafficking is perpetuating fragility. This paper contributes to this area of research by identifying five channels through which trafficking is intensifying fragility in the region. The relative importance of each channel is discussed, with specific countries as case-study examples. Possible programmatic responses are then suggested with examples of policy approaches successfully adopted elsewhere in the world.
Trafficking and Fragility in West AfricaRalston, Laura; Dechery, Côme (World Bank, Washington, DC, 2015-08-18)Trafficking is an emerging concern in West Africa that is gaining increasing attention from the international community. This paper examines the relationship between trafficking and fragility in the region through a meta-analysis of existing knowledge and data on the subject. Given the scope of this paper, we will not attempt to provide any primary empirical or qualitative analysis, but instead focus on offering a comprehensive, unbiased overview of the recent policy and academic literature on the subject, which we hope will assist development practitioners working in the region and help the World Bank identify possible programmatic responses. The authors start this paper by defining trafficking to frame our analysis, and then provide an overview of the trafficking economy across the region. Next, authors outline the potential channels between trafficking and fragility, discussing the actors involved (organized criminal groups, rebels, local or national level politicians, the military, and civilians) and their relevance to specific countries. Finally, the authors present our suggestions on possible policy and programmatic responses, based on identifying both regional and external dimensions to the problems.
Deconstructing InfanticideVallillee, Eric (Scholarship@Western, 2015-04-10)The offence of infanticide is allegedly based in debunked and sexist ideas about women and pregnancy. This article demonstrates that this offence is both necessary and beneficial regardless of its alleged basis. This article outlines the elements of infanticide and examines the legislative history from Medieval England to its adoption in Canada before discussing contemporary discourses on infanticide with a particular focus on the application of modern medical science. This work argues there are two issues with the current offence: (1) the requirement of a “disturbed mind” in the accused resulting from childbirth or lactation; and (2) the lack of a required causal connection between the “disturbed mind” and the offence. Reforming the offence in this way would reduce the breadth of the offence and improve the ways in which women are dealt with by the criminal justice system.
