The objective of this project is to investigate circular economy practices from the perspective of social inclusion in the Brazilian context. Three research questions are proposed: (1) How are companies engaging in the social practices of CE? (2) What are the relationships established between companies or other types of economic agents to promote CE practices that take social inclusion into account? (3) What are the effects of CE practices on the social groups involved? To answer these questions, a literature review will be conducted on the circular economy, considering social practices. For the field research, the qualitative approach was chosen using the multiple case study method. Interviews with companies and key stakeholders will be conducted through a semi-structured questionnaire. It is expected to contribute to the operations management literature regarding circular economy practices, as well as to identify possible mechanisms of coordination of these practices that lead to increase sustainable development.
