Affirmative Action in Brazilian Higher Education

The aim of this paper is to examine affirmative action measures in Brazilian higher education, taking into account the perspective of race/ethnicity and gender. The qualitative study was based on documentary research. The implementation of the Quota Law has contributed to racial inclusion in Brazilian educational institutions, becoming a relevant means to reverse the exclusion of individuals from higher education. However, some actions still need to be undertaken in order to improve it. The study carried out shows that, in the design of public policies in higher education, gender has been neglected in relation to other aspects considered in intersectional studies.
