The International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth (IPC-IG) will develop studies and researches for the National School of Training and Improvement of Labour Magistrates (Enamat) in order to understand how different countries organize their labour jurisdiction, through comparative analysis with Brazil.

Case studies of five countries that have a labour court system similar to Brazil’s will be conducted. The countries are Argentina, Mexico, Portugal, South Africa and South Korea. There will also be a case study about Brazil, which will include the understanding of the aspects that influence the performance of Labour magistrates, by evaluating the process and formative model adopted by the judicial schools.

IPC-IG Research Coordinator Diana Sawyer explains that the Centre has extensive experience in comparative global research, which will enable it to analyse the judiciary, especially the work system. In addition, the IPC-IG has expertise in the evaluation of social programmes and policies and can carry out a formative and process evaluation to verify the adherence of Enamat training programs to the profile of students of various courts, as well as the magistrates' professional careers.

"These objectives require a concertation of different methodologies of data collection and analysis, harmonically combining qualitative and quantitative research, as well as analytical assessment approaches in which a study of profiles and life history will be examined", explains the Researcher.

The project, which is expected to last two years, will be carried out thanks to an agreement signed by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), the Brazilian Cooperation Agency (ABC) and the Superior Labour Court (TST).
