São Paulo Legal Socialization Study

The São Paulo Legal Socialization Study (SPLSS) is a longitudinal research focused on how teenagers develop values, attitudes, and behaviors regarding rules, laws, and authorities. In line with the main objectives of the CEPID/FAPESP project, the SPLSS considers the legitimation of the authorities as the main result of the legal socialization process.

A sample with 800 teenagers from public and private schools in the city of São Paulo participate annually in this research, answering a survey about their daily life at home, at school, and their experiences with the police and the law.
