Decent work expressing universal values and respecting cultural diversity: propositions for intervention

Resumo

Trabalho digno é um conceito abrangente que expressa as aspirações das pessoas para a sua vida profissional. Este conceito tem tido elevada legitimidade na medida em que foi proposto pela Organização Internacional do Trabalho, a agência da Organização das Nações Unidas para as questões laborais, que é o fórum mundial institucional mais bem estabelecido para a cooperação. Além disso, o trabalho digno agregou diversos temas de investigação das várias disciplinas que abordam as questões laborais, assumindo assim um papel central como objeto de investigação e como bússola orientadora para a intervenção nesta área. Este artigo visa discutir as consequências para a intervenção sobre trabalho digno da complexidade cultural nas sociedades atuais. Após realçar questões de investigação prévias que têm sido tratadas nas disciplinas ligadas aos assuntos laborais e que se encontram próximas das dimensões do trabalho digno, as consequências da complexidade cultural são trazidas para a discussão. É proposto um equilíbrio entre valores humanos universais, diversidade cultural e cultura como um fenómeno social evolutivo, equilíbrio esse expresso em várias proposições sobre intervenção em trabalho digno culturalmente sensível.
