This article seeks to understand the broader meanings behind the recent loss of hope for the futures of kids 1 who live on the streets of Brazil. Through a historical examination of twentieth century Brazilian childhood legislation, the article contextualizes growing despair about the prospects of street children within the political, social, historical, and economic transformations occurring during Brazil's transition from military dictatorship to formal democracy. Accordingly, the article questions the extent to which the ideologies and institutions generated by and within Brazil's emerging neoliberal state are based upon—or perhaps lead to—the increased social exclusion (and in many cases the physical death) of kids who live on the streets.
