MARIEYHARA, Inés Dósil  y  LOPEZ GALLEGO, Laura. Narratives of criminalization, stigmatization and counter-stigmatization of teenagers in their meetings with the Uruguayan police. Psicol. Conoc. Soc. [online]. 2021, vol.11, n.3, pp.57-70.  Epub 01-Dic-2021. ISSN 1688-7026.

In this article, we present the results of the research we carried out with adolescents, within the framework of the emergence of a crime prevention program that was implemented in the outskirts of Montevideo. Based on narratives constructed with the participants, young people of 18 and 19 years of age who had been detained in police stations, we proposed to make visible the daily practices of police control to which they are exposed. In this paper, we ask about the situations of harassment and humiliation experienced by young people in their dealings with the police, emphasising their strategies of resistance, as well as the emotions/affections that circulate in these encounters. The discussion about how and what for investigate the forms of police control over precarious young people takes on ethical and political relevance, articulated with the processes of circulation and dissemination of the knowledge produced.

Palabras clave : Young people; police; criminalization; narratives.
