ALMEIDA, Maria Hermínia Tavares de. The social policies of Lula's administration.Translated byEnrique Julio Romera. Novos estud. - CEBRAP [online]. 2005, vol.1Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0101-3300.
The article focuses on the initiatives taken by the Lula administration regarding social policies. To begin with, we describe the social reform process implemented by the governments that followed the redemocratization of Brazil. Then, we examine some indices showing the evolution of social conditions due to social policies practiced during the democratic period. Finally, we analyze the views about the social question predominant in the PT government, as well as the most appropriate policies to tackle such a question. We also discuss the present government's proposals and initiatives regarding the social area.
