This one-day workshop brings together Brazilian scholars focused on some of the pressing issues in the country through the lenses of political science. It offers diverse accounts about democracy, public policy, reforms and contemporary issues in a country that has experienced major political changes over the past decade. Since 2013, Brazil has witnessed massive street protests, profound political polarization, a presidential impeachment, corruption scandals, deep economic crisis and the rise of far-right populism. The workshop looks at this changing context in order to shed light on a myriad of topics of Brazilian Politics.
The workshop is supported by the Jack W. Peltason Center for the Study of Democracy (UCI) and by the Latin American Studies Center (UCI). This is an opportunity to get useful feedback and build a network of scholars. In addition, the workshop is intended to foster the debate on Brazil and to expose the arguments developed by different scholars to UCI’s audience.
