The project I propose is an ethnographic study of governance in São Paulo. It would aim to examine governance as it is negotiated within and among different state departments (including health, education, and security) and in the periphery of the city. In doing so, it would be able to examine the overlapping governance practices of different sets of actors, namely the political appointees that design policy, the public functionaries that carry it out on the ground, and the complex webs of community actors that often have their own structures of governance.
