Title: The Doha Round: Impact On Brazilian Employment
Author: de Freitas Barbosa A.
Abstract: This article traces the evolution of Brazilian foreign policy in the 1990s as a result of the implementation of liberal economic policies. It demonstrates how, at the end of the decade and particularly during the government of Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (Lula), Brazil undertook a more developmentalist approach. Yet current negotiations with the World Trade Organization include the possibility of an agreement which will open internal market to goods and services produced abroad. The article argues the impact on the labour market could be as devastating as the ones experienced by Brazil in the 1990s: a rise in unemployment with a shift to the informal sector, and a worsening of inequality. To give away real protection in industry and services in exchange for small gains in agricultural exports, as an outcome of the WTO negotiations, would not be a good deal for Brazil, at least from a labour market perspective.
