SCHILLAGI, Carolina. Public problems, notorious cases and scandals: Some elements for a theoretical discussion. Polis [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.30, pp.245-266. ISSN 0718-6568.

Which is the relationship that is produced in specific historical moments between certain events, changed into notorious cases or political scandals, and a public problem? What can the study of the cases suggest in regarding an aspect or a moment in the shaping of that public problem as such? These are some of the matters that are going to be examined in this article, inviting us to think on the relationship between different theoretical perspectives and conceptual frameworks steaming from the field of study of the sociology of public problems, as well as of scandal and event theories.

Keywords : Public problems; scandals; events; social demonstrations.
