The objective of this study is to assess the implications of Brazil’s conditional cash transfer programme, the "Bolsa Familia" Programme, for the Decent Work Agenda. The Decent Work Agenda first emerged in a report by the Director-General of the ILO
in June 1999.1 Decent work is defined by the ILO as "productive work under conditions of freedom, equity, security and dignity, in which rights are protected and
adequate remuneration and social coverage are provided.” Work that can be classified as
decent therefore ensures respect for labour rights and guarantees living standards in
conditions of dignity; it accordingly excludes any kind of work under constraint, for excessive hours or for under-remuneration.
