Please join us for an urgent and open discussion on the recent election in Brazil that brought hard-right candidate Jaír Bolsonaro to the presidency. Drawing on the expertise of both NYU faculty and activists, we will address what this election means for academic freedom, social policy, human rights, the rule of law, environmental protections, and democracy in Brazil and in the region. In addition to presentations and video conferencing with activists in Brazil, we will dedicate part of the time to break-out sessions to think through and develop strategies to support solidarity work moving forward.
This event is free and open to the public.
Presented in partnership with: NYU's Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics, Urban Democracy Lab, Institute for Public Knowledge, NACLA, and the Department of Spanish and Portuguese as well as the Defend Democracy in Brazil Committee..
