António Firmino Costa, Fernando Luís Machado e Patrícia Ávila

José Madureira Pinto e Virgílio Borges Pereira

Starting from different angles of analysis, they not only question some of the processes producing and reproducing these phenomena, but also make suggestions for sociologically informed intervention.
