A quarter of a century of political stability in Brazil came to an end with the 2016 impeachment of Dilma Rousseff and the 2018 election of the far-right populist Jair Bolsonaro to the presidency. Amidst this conservative backlash, institutional reforms have deepened the distance between citizens and their representatives, between the have nots and haves. Where does Brazil go from here? Join us for a discussion with editors of and contributors to this exciting new volume on Brazil’s 'de-democratization' process.

Host: Bernardo Bianchi (CMB) Panelists: Sérgio Costa (LAI-FU Berlin) Patricia Rangel (UFRJ, Brazil)
