From the Chilean experience, this article aims to examine the meaning of the notion of citizenship in the context of current assistance policies. At first time, we analyze their recent development as well as the logics and processes that explain the emergence and transformation of the known device “Chile Solidario” (CHS), emphasizing the constellation of social aid developed under his wing. In the second stage, the concept of citizenship is discussed from a sociological perspective, non-formal or normative, attempting to show, through the testimonies of women beneficiaries of social assistance policies, the empirical content of an assistance citizenship as it prevails in their life experiences.
