FGV alumnus receives Honorable Mention in 15th CAPES Dissertation Awards
“Gender Transversality in Care Policies: A Comparative Analysis of Child Care Policies in Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay During the Turn to the Left,” a paper by Mariana Mazzini Marcondes, who obtained her doctorate from Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Sao Paulo School of Business Administration (FGV EAESP), received an Honorable Mention in the 15th CAPES Dissertation Awards. In all, 1,421 dissertations were submitted to this year’s awards.
The dissertation, supervised by Professor Marta Farah, sought to verify the extent to which gender transversality was incorporated into public care policies in three Latin American countries during the “turn to the left,” when these countries were under the command of leftist governments. The chosen countries were Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay.
The study consisted of a qualitative and comparative study of two child care policies: daily education and care services for infants aged from zero to three years and paid maternity leave. It was based on document analysis and semi-structured interviews, focusing on three dimensions of gender transversality: institutional conditions, adherence to feminist political agendas, and framing from a gender perspective.
“This is yet another award won in an ultra-competitive field, underlining the research excellence of FGV’s schools and institutes,” said Professor Antonio Freitas, FGV’s provost for education, research and graduate studies.
