Resumo

Este artigo apresenta as diretrizes de uma abordagem da desigualdade que seja apropriada para países do Sul Global do ponto de vista conceitual, metodológico e empírico. Buscamos inicialmente criticar os enfoques convencionais e, em seguida, apresentamos estudos que contribuem para entender as causas multidimensionais da desigualdade nesses países, em especial na África do Sul. Nossa intenção é contribuir para a construção de uma agenda de pesquisa inovadora, que seja interdisciplinar, historicamente embasada e centrada nas relações de poder. Além disso, tal abordagem deve buscar combinar a explicação no campo teórico (ressaltando elementos estruturais e institucionais) com a análise comparada de trajetórias nacionais (identificando semelhanças e divergências) e com a discussão substantiva das políticas públicas destinadas a superar os problemas diagnosticados (examinando seus principais resultados imediatos).
