SILVA, Josué Pereira da. Inequality in contemporary Brazilian debate: Between citizenship and recognition. Civitas, Rev. Ciênc. Soc. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.4, pp.703-722. ISSN 1984-7289.

In this article, I will deal with the problem of inequality in connection to the reception of the theories of citizenship and of recognition in Brazil. These theories have been playing a key role in the present day debate on inequality. My aim is to see how the Brazilian authors that seek support on these two theories approach inequality. I will proceed by investigating whether they have or not a common understanding of Brazilian inequality, through these theories. After achieving an understanding of Brazilian inequality in the light of these debates, I will conclude by making some comments on how recent Brazilian experiments in social policies, mainly those related to income transfer, may contribute to reduce social inequality.

Palavras-chave : Inequality; Citizenship; Recognition; Brazil.
