OLIVEIRA, Vanessa Elias de. Judiciário e privatizações no Brasil: existe uma judicialização da política?. Dados [online]. 2005, vol.48, n.3, pp.559-686. ISSN 0011-5258.

The central objective of this study was to analyze the work of the Judiciary Branch in the privatizations process carried out in Brazil during the 1990s. The article attempts to demonstrate that although the Judiciary has been called on as arbiter of political conflicts, in the case of privatizations it did not respond to this demand, leaving incomplete what we refer to as a judicialization cycle, without which one cannot speak of the judicialization of politics per se. Finally, the article seeks to call attention to the need to exercise greater parsimony and precision with the term "judicialization of politics", increasingly present in Brazilian political science analyses.

Keywords : judicialization of politics; privatizations; Brazilian Judiciary Branch.
