DIAS OLIVEIRA, Samuel Lucas. Intersectionality and the case of the Employees of the Santo Antônio de Jesus Fireworks Factory and their Relatives vs. Brazil: a jurisprudential analysis. Rev. Derecho [online]. 2023, n.28, e3107.  Epub Dec 01, 2023. ISSN 1510-3714.

This jurisprudential analysis aims to verify if the use of intersectional discrimination carried out by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights in the case of the Employees of the Santo Antônio de Jesus Fireworks Factory and their Relatives vs. Brazil is in line with international jurisprudence and the standards developed by other regional human rights courts. This case was chosen due to the multiplicity of identities of the individuals involved, the structural dimension of human rights violations, and the complex observations made by the IACHR regarding the intersection of intersectional and structural discrimination. Primary bibliographic sources -cases judged by the courts- and secondary sources -books, articles, and periodicals- were used to trace the concepts, investigate discrimination and human rights violations, and understand the judgments rendered by regional courts. The cases used for the analysis of the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights were selected based on the organ's own selection of “key cases” regarding intersectionality, while the cases from the African Court of Human Rights and Peoples were provided by renowned researchers in the field.

Keywords : intersectionality; Inter-American Court of Human Rights; human rights; jurisprudence.
