Under this title, the student will conduct comparative research between the content of the Human Development Reports (HDR) on Brazil - Made by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), UN agency for the promotion of human development in the world -and the content of the reports produced or adopted by the ILO for the follow-up of the Brazilian Decent Work Agenda and its derived programs (National Decent Work and Decent Work Plan and Decent Work National Agenda for Youth). The assessment will be undertaken specifically for the examination of the explicit or implicit approach by national HDRs to issues directly related to Decent Work and its four strategic objectives (protection of fundamental rights in labor relations, job creation, social dialogue). The purpose of this study is to identify if there is a real interlocution or interaction between the actions of the UN to promote human development and the ILO to promote Decent Work in relation to their work in Brazil. decent work was declared by the ILO itself as inspired by the same notion of Social Development that influenced UNDP and global and national HDRs. The researcher will be responsible for learning, systematizing and analyzing the RDHs related to Brazil, produced since the National Decent Work Agenda of 2006, focusing on the possible explicit or implicit content related to Decent Work, in comparison with the reports produced or adopted by the ILO, with the purpose of monitoring the fulfillment of the said National Agenda and its derived plans, with the support of bibliographic texts that relate to the theme and serve the purpose of the research.
