HIGHER EDUCATION AND ETHNOCULTURAL
DIVERSITY: affirmative action in Brazil
JOSÉ WILSON RODRIGUES DE MELO
FEDERAL UNIVERSITY OF TOCANTINS
New Civilizational Paradigm
The consolidation of a globalized world society and the emergence of a
new civilizational paradigm through the care of the poor, marginalized
and excluded. If your problems are not calculated, still remain in
prehistory. We have opened the new millennium, but not the new
civilization and the era of eternal peace as all human, beings of creation
and our splendid planet.
L. BOFF (1999)
International Treaties
Brazil participates in the international community being a signatory to various
documents. These instruments aim to validate the recognition of certain rights
around the globe. The CF 1988 ( BRAZIL , 1988) in Article 5 , § 2 , ​provides :
"The rights and guarantees expressed in this Constitution do not exclude
others deriving from the regime and from the principles adopted by it , or
international treaties to which the Federal Republic of Brazil is a party . " The
Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948 ) ( UNESCO , 1948) is a reference
example of both " intra " as living " between" states . The Convention on the
Fight against Discrimination in Education, (UNESCO, 1960 ), The Conference on
Education for All in Jomtien (UNESCO , 1990), The Hamburg Declaration
(UNESCO , 1997), the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Durban Action
Plan, a product of the Third World Conference against Racism, Racial
Discrimination, Xenophobia and related Intolerance (UNESCO , 2001) etc., are
references to important international acts recognized by Brazilian state.
(MELO, 2008:185-6 ).
Federal Constitution - 1988
The Federal Constitution - CF 1988 (BRAZIL, 1988)
establishes a recognition of the principle of the
inherent right of all human beings equal. In its wake,
the CF strives for equal rights under the law as a search
for a more just society. By contradiction, Magna Law of
the country, to take one (equal), it assumes the right to
be different (multiple) as an enrichment factor of
equality itself. (MELO, 2008: 180)
Racial Equalities
The Law
12.711/2012, better
known as the "law of
quotas', governs the
way to access
universities and
institutes of the
federal network.
BRAZILIAN IDENTITY
Brazilian identity is seated on the plurality, mixing or
hybridism. Consequently, the identity got by ethnic origin
tends to strengthen or weaken. That, if it approaches or moves
away from the ideal claimed by political or cultural identity. A
reality forged in the secular process of the society
composition. This phenomenon, the proximity or remoteness
of the identity ideal, also fluctuates, the position of the various
groups located in social stratification. For too long, the ideal
identification thickened into a promotion of "whitening" of
national miscegenation.
(MELO, 2008: 168).
Ethnocultural inclusion policies
Brazil has been to broaden
the policies of ethnocultural
inclusion in recent years.
The main merit of this
factor is due to return to
democracy.
Thus,
opportunities
tend
to
increase. One of these is the
public policy of 'affirmative
action' mediated by the
network of universities and
federal technical institutes.
Young People from Public Schools
Expand Access

• The goal is to expand
access of poor young
people from public
schools, as well as
african-Brazilian and
indigenous. Might infer
that this law carries out
the policy of social and
ethnocultural inclusion.

Social and Ethnocultural
Inequalities
Affirmative Actions
• The 'affirmative action' is
located right where the
principle of 'different needs to
be treated differently' as a way
to preserve the complex
equality (Walzer, 1998). This
contrast makes the existence
of equality in democracy. This
is finally a way to reduce
inequalities: a constant in the
structure of Brazilian society
throughout history

Ethnicity in Brazil
Equality in Diversity
Michael WALZER (1997) theorizes the urgency of
equality be taken beyond its literal sense
(simple). Democracy as a system of possibilities
establishes a dialectical relationship between
equality and difference. Hence the rule of
equality in diversity. When different is treated
unequally break up the democratic imperatives.
An understanding of equality presupposes a
more complex dimension.
(MELO, 2008 : 66).
Democracy Nowadays
TAYLOR (1992) finds support in the discussions and actions of
democracy in this context. Democracy as a transparent concept to
the changing world in which we live. A concept that is different
from equality towards similar, standardization, uniformity: the
right to be equal to the difference. A complex analysis when
defining equality tends to their common or literal, simplistic
sense. TAYLOR says (1992:21): (...) Democracy has ushered in a
politics of equal recognition, which has taken various forms over
the years, and has now returned in the form of demands for the
equal status of cultures and genders.
(MELO, 2008: 61)
Advances
Multicultural Policies
• Advances in the years
following the 1988 Federal
Constitution, Law of
Guidelines and Bases of
National Education - LDBEN,
besides the establishment
of the Secretariat for the
Promotion of Racial Equality
- SEPPIR, among other
actions, mark the changes
in society.

Brazilian Ethnic Diversity
Network Federal Universities
Federal University of Tocantins

• The network of federal
universities consists of 59
units arranged around the
country. One is the Federal
University of Tocantins UFT. This is present in the
entire territory of the state.
The headquarters is located
in Palmas.

University and Opportunity
University Multicultural Policies
Ethnocultural Inclusion
UFT pursues ethnocultural
inclusion . It created the policy of
'affirmative action' (2004) where
five percent of the vacancies
displayed on the entrance exam
are reserved for Indians. This year
(2013) the african-Brazilian
(Quilombolas) were integrated.
A big win for this segment of the
local population.

UFT Affirmative Action
Universities Expansion
Undergraduate and Graduate
• Currently, the number of
graduate students at the UFT
is the estimate of 12 thousand.
In rapid growth, there are
graduate courses (master and
doctorate) and specializations,
etc. Added layers to the
number of learners who are
the collective of the courses
offered in distance education
format - EAD.

Permanence Policies
•

Allow citizens to study in higher
education has the objective of
educational policy. Especially in the
current context of the knowledge
society. Countries seek to achieve
this purpose several years ago,
more precisely in the last four
decades (Harvey, L., Drew, S.,
Smith, M., 2006). They highlight a
significant number of students who
have experienced failure and
dropout in higher education. It
became a challenge to achieve the
prospect of democratization of the
university and society.
Permanece in the University
Obstacles and Challenges
It is significant to optimize
policies of permanence at the
university. Thus, it is essential to
good management of the
obstacles and challenges in the
field of hospitality, the integration
of the academic success of the
groups identified by cultural
diversity. The democratization of
society
requires
university.
Multicultural policies represent
advances in social development
and human rights.

Succes in Higher Education
A Unique Country in its Multiplicity
Perhaps our history can be told with other letters in the day that
the main pride of the nation be its people. This will, in turn, to
enjoy the dignity of life as a citizen. Undoubtedly, this will not
occur without effective changes in the actual school that the
children of the poor people attend. Obviously, a number of other
sectors will have to find articulated in the direction of that
transformation. So possibly reach a modern Brazil with real
conditions for inclusion of all people in the education and
citizenship. A unique country in its multiplicity. (MELO, 2008:
188).
Unimultiplicity
And... the future has
the way at the
unimultiplicity. Thus,
each man is by
himself the mankind
house.
Tom Zé, 2006

Higher education and ethnocultural diversity

  • 1. HIGHER EDUCATION AND ETHNOCULTURAL DIVERSITY: affirmative action in Brazil JOSÉ WILSON RODRIGUES DE MELO FEDERAL UNIVERSITY OF TOCANTINS
  • 2. New Civilizational Paradigm The consolidation of a globalized world society and the emergence of a new civilizational paradigm through the care of the poor, marginalized and excluded. If your problems are not calculated, still remain in prehistory. We have opened the new millennium, but not the new civilization and the era of eternal peace as all human, beings of creation and our splendid planet. L. BOFF (1999)
  • 3. International Treaties Brazil participates in the international community being a signatory to various documents. These instruments aim to validate the recognition of certain rights around the globe. The CF 1988 ( BRAZIL , 1988) in Article 5 , § 2 , ​provides : "The rights and guarantees expressed in this Constitution do not exclude others deriving from the regime and from the principles adopted by it , or international treaties to which the Federal Republic of Brazil is a party . " The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948 ) ( UNESCO , 1948) is a reference example of both " intra " as living " between" states . The Convention on the Fight against Discrimination in Education, (UNESCO, 1960 ), The Conference on Education for All in Jomtien (UNESCO , 1990), The Hamburg Declaration (UNESCO , 1997), the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Durban Action Plan, a product of the Third World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and related Intolerance (UNESCO , 2001) etc., are references to important international acts recognized by Brazilian state. (MELO, 2008:185-6 ).
  • 4. Federal Constitution - 1988 The Federal Constitution - CF 1988 (BRAZIL, 1988) establishes a recognition of the principle of the inherent right of all human beings equal. In its wake, the CF strives for equal rights under the law as a search for a more just society. By contradiction, Magna Law of the country, to take one (equal), it assumes the right to be different (multiple) as an enrichment factor of equality itself. (MELO, 2008: 180)
  • 5. Racial Equalities The Law 12.711/2012, better known as the "law of quotas', governs the way to access universities and institutes of the federal network.
  • 6. BRAZILIAN IDENTITY Brazilian identity is seated on the plurality, mixing or hybridism. Consequently, the identity got by ethnic origin tends to strengthen or weaken. That, if it approaches or moves away from the ideal claimed by political or cultural identity. A reality forged in the secular process of the society composition. This phenomenon, the proximity or remoteness of the identity ideal, also fluctuates, the position of the various groups located in social stratification. For too long, the ideal identification thickened into a promotion of "whitening" of national miscegenation. (MELO, 2008: 168).
  • 7. Ethnocultural inclusion policies Brazil has been to broaden the policies of ethnocultural inclusion in recent years. The main merit of this factor is due to return to democracy. Thus, opportunities tend to increase. One of these is the public policy of 'affirmative action' mediated by the network of universities and federal technical institutes.
  • 8. Young People from Public Schools Expand Access • The goal is to expand access of poor young people from public schools, as well as african-Brazilian and indigenous. Might infer that this law carries out the policy of social and ethnocultural inclusion. Social and Ethnocultural
  • 9. Inequalities Affirmative Actions • The 'affirmative action' is located right where the principle of 'different needs to be treated differently' as a way to preserve the complex equality (Walzer, 1998). This contrast makes the existence of equality in democracy. This is finally a way to reduce inequalities: a constant in the structure of Brazilian society throughout history Ethnicity in Brazil
  • 10. Equality in Diversity Michael WALZER (1997) theorizes the urgency of equality be taken beyond its literal sense (simple). Democracy as a system of possibilities establishes a dialectical relationship between equality and difference. Hence the rule of equality in diversity. When different is treated unequally break up the democratic imperatives. An understanding of equality presupposes a more complex dimension. (MELO, 2008 : 66).
  • 11. Democracy Nowadays TAYLOR (1992) finds support in the discussions and actions of democracy in this context. Democracy as a transparent concept to the changing world in which we live. A concept that is different from equality towards similar, standardization, uniformity: the right to be equal to the difference. A complex analysis when defining equality tends to their common or literal, simplistic sense. TAYLOR says (1992:21): (...) Democracy has ushered in a politics of equal recognition, which has taken various forms over the years, and has now returned in the form of demands for the equal status of cultures and genders. (MELO, 2008: 61)
  • 12. Advances Multicultural Policies • Advances in the years following the 1988 Federal Constitution, Law of Guidelines and Bases of National Education - LDBEN, besides the establishment of the Secretariat for the Promotion of Racial Equality - SEPPIR, among other actions, mark the changes in society. Brazilian Ethnic Diversity
  • 13. Network Federal Universities Federal University of Tocantins • The network of federal universities consists of 59 units arranged around the country. One is the Federal University of Tocantins UFT. This is present in the entire territory of the state. The headquarters is located in Palmas. University and Opportunity
  • 14. University Multicultural Policies Ethnocultural Inclusion UFT pursues ethnocultural inclusion . It created the policy of 'affirmative action' (2004) where five percent of the vacancies displayed on the entrance exam are reserved for Indians. This year (2013) the african-Brazilian (Quilombolas) were integrated. A big win for this segment of the local population. UFT Affirmative Action
  • 15. Universities Expansion Undergraduate and Graduate • Currently, the number of graduate students at the UFT is the estimate of 12 thousand. In rapid growth, there are graduate courses (master and doctorate) and specializations, etc. Added layers to the number of learners who are the collective of the courses offered in distance education format - EAD. Permanence Policies • Allow citizens to study in higher education has the objective of educational policy. Especially in the current context of the knowledge society. Countries seek to achieve this purpose several years ago, more precisely in the last four decades (Harvey, L., Drew, S., Smith, M., 2006). They highlight a significant number of students who have experienced failure and dropout in higher education. It became a challenge to achieve the prospect of democratization of the university and society.
  • 16. Permanece in the University Obstacles and Challenges It is significant to optimize policies of permanence at the university. Thus, it is essential to good management of the obstacles and challenges in the field of hospitality, the integration of the academic success of the groups identified by cultural diversity. The democratization of society requires university. Multicultural policies represent advances in social development and human rights. Succes in Higher Education
  • 17. A Unique Country in its Multiplicity Perhaps our history can be told with other letters in the day that the main pride of the nation be its people. This will, in turn, to enjoy the dignity of life as a citizen. Undoubtedly, this will not occur without effective changes in the actual school that the children of the poor people attend. Obviously, a number of other sectors will have to find articulated in the direction of that transformation. So possibly reach a modern Brazil with real conditions for inclusion of all people in the education and citizenship. A unique country in its multiplicity. (MELO, 2008: 188).
  • 18. Unimultiplicity And... the future has the way at the unimultiplicity. Thus, each man is by himself the mankind house. Tom Zé, 2006 jwilsonrm@uft.edu.br
