Abstract: the study aims to describe the family characteristics of street situation youths from the perception of these youngsters. individual and qualitative semi-structured interviews with seventeen youths, aged between 11 and 16 years (m=14,05; dp=1,24), of both sexes, were conducted. it was an opportunity for understanding the dynamic interplay of risk factors that move youngsters to street life. first, the fact of being on the street does not imply the absence of a family. children and adolescents enrolled in the study had ties with their families, even when they perceive it as a very fragile one. only five participants would go back home every day. the participants described a variety of family configurations. remarriage was pointed out by 41% and 35% mentioned a monoparental family configuration, led by a woman. women who take care of the household are of great importance in this population's family structure. in contrast, 58% did not know who their fathers are. the number of siblings varied between one and 12 (m=5,69; dp=3,07). the majority of parents were unemployed or involved in informal labor. in order to supplement the family income many children start to work on the streets. violence, poverty, adversity, associated with social, affective, and economical problems seems to play an important and dynamic role in shaping families characteristics of street youths. it is necessary to offer opportunities to promote resilience for these families. women had an essential role in family care, and may be a powerful link for development.

Abstract: There is growing interest and importance in addressing the logistical and ethical challenges of conducting research with disenfranchised populations, including homeless and working street youth. Drawing upon established international standards on human rights, we review legal and ethical codes for research on disenfranchised populations established by national and international research and professional organizations. Then we explore how university-based researchers can apply these standards to children and adolescents growing up in situations characterized by physical and psycho- logical neglect, lack of adult supervision, limited protection from local law enforcement, and drug use and violence. We reflect upon on our experi- ences in conducting research with vulnerable Brazilian youth to illustrate the challenges of implementing ethical guidelines in real-world situations and propose possible solutions to ethical dilemmas encountered in the field.
