Brazil’s presidential elections resulted in the win of the populist Jair Bolsonaro, a far-right candidate with a tough law & order agenda and rhetoric. Now the president-elect will confront a crisis-ridden country, including tough economic challenges, pending corruption charges against his predecessors, and numerous concerns about his own human rights background. Join us for a conversation about the many implications of this election with:

Introductory remarks by Professor Cynthia McClintock and moderated discussion by Professor Patricia Acerbi.
