Project: "The Road to Success: Mechanisms of Social Mobility and Individual Strategies of the Poor in Brazil"


Supervisor:
Prof. Dr. Sérgio Costa, Freie Universität Berlin


This Ph.D. project aims to identify and analyze what mechanisms participate, contributing or hindering, to social mobility trajectories of people from popular class in Brazil. To answer this question, I intend to examine the role played by education in enhancing the chances of the poor to access better living conditions. Secondly, I will investigate to what extent the constructions and dissolutions of social bonds can work or not as a support for those who are in search of mobility. Thus, I will analyze the impact of social mobility on the network of social relationships. I intend to conduct ethnographic research, based on observations and biographical interviews with women and men, aged 24 to 64 years, originally from popular classes but who have experienced upward social mobility. This research will be carried out in the Baixada Fluminense, a region located in the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Though little studied in the Brazilian social sciences, this area stands as an example of the pattern observed throughout the country, that is, the persistence of inequalities even in the context of economic growth. In this sense, this study case can enable us to study the entanglement of inequalities from the local level, to the national, the regional (Latin America) and to the global level
