This Doctoral Exchange Application for the Emory University is part of for my doctoral dissertation. This proposal is part of a broader research that studies the Labor Court in Brazil. The project proposes to analyze the role played by workers, employers and law operators (judges, lawyers and prosecutors) in the decision-making processes of the Superior Labor Court, from 1946 to 1968, from pleas derived from individual bargaining. It will highlight the struggles and legal discussions around the right to strike, employment stability and wages. The period proposed in the project encompasses the democratic phase (1946-1964) and the first term of the military dictatorship in Brazil (1964-1968). I investigate the impact of those different conjunctures on the decisions of the Labor Court regarding the most important workers' demands.
