Given the drastic and rapid political, social, economic and environmental changes occurring in Brazil today, we will host a round table discussion to examine the impacts of these changes on Brazil’s democracy. Participants from a variety of disciplines will speak according to their area of expertise and research, and to the effects of these changes within Brazilian, Latin American and global contexts.
