CORDOVA, Ismael de  y  GONCALVES ALVES, Ismael. Programs of conditional transfer of income through the lens of social rights: an option to combat of Brazilian vulnerabilities. Polis [online]. 2019, vol.18, n.53, pp.168-191. ISSN 0718-6568.

In this paper we will analyze the National Social Assistance Policy and the Bolsa Familia Program, in their interaction with the different spheres of public administration and society, in order to identify their possible positive impacts on poverty reduction. In order to better understand public social assistance policies, we base this work on the perspective of social rights, understood as elements inherent to democracies and with the capacity to emancipate and reinforce citizenship. In its approach, this research is based on qualitative-quantitative study. Qualitative, since it seeks to know aspects and functioning of the country's Social Assistance policies and, quantitative, for investigating the process of distribution of these services between 2016 and 2017 in Brazil. Our conclusions allow us to identify how certain public policies, in spite of being important, are susceptible to governmental decisions that could mean their demobilization, compromising efforts to combat social vulnerabilities.
