Stephanie Savell is currently a PhD candidate in Department of Anthropology at Brown University.  Her interests include political culture, activism, and citizenship; crime-related violence and governance; and Brazilian security and policing practices, particularly in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro. Her dissertation is an ethnographic investigation of Rio de Janeiro’s controversial “police pacification” program, intended to take back control of the city’s favelas from armed drug trafficking gangs. Her focus is on how favela residents, police, and armed forces experience public security in their daily lives, and the ways these experiences intersect and collide.  She is also the special guest editor for our forum “Security in Brazil: World Cup 2014 and Beyond
