SILVA, Leonardo Mello e. Is it possible a deliberative politics in labor?. Lua Nova [online]. 2007, n.72, pp.143-174. ISSN 1807-0175.

Industrial relations in Brazil have been presenting nowadays a series of innovative negotiations coming from the initiative of collective actors themselves either on the macro social concertation level as well as on labor relations at the plant micro level. These initiatives point to the incorporation and use of a dialogic and comprehensive approach between interlocutors based on the deliberative democracy’s analytical body. The limits of such approach in the classical class conflict situations are still to be theoretically stood. This paper aims to make use of that intellectual and academic tool in order to understand practical situations and then testing the accuracy of the tentative use of that tool itself to specific and concrete topics of sociological research. Underlying the paper is the idea that the deliberative procedure on the work’s world is a way to enlarge public sphere in Brazil.

Keywords : Deliberative democracy; Industrial and labor relations; Collective bargaining.
