Abstract

Psychosocial studies generally connect state violence with undemocratic and totalitarian system that trample down human rights. In fact scientific literature is poor in the state violence practiced in democratic societies. If the international observers agreed that in Genoa there has been a heavy suspension of human rights during the G8 summit, it remains to be investigated how it has concretized itself and what kind of suffering has generated. By articulating the concepts of social delegitimization and psychopolitical trauma, in this article we analyze the collective violence suffered by female protesters.
