Event description

Description

We are pleased to announce the third edition of Brazil Forum UK!

Brazil Forum UK 2018 will address the theme “Break[ing] Down the Constitution”, in reference to the 30th anniversary of the 1988 Brazilian Federal Constitution. We propose a reflection that considers the Constitution not only as a legal document, but also as the social contract that it is. Some of Brazil’s main leaders and thinkers will analyse the social, economic and political advances and setbacks faced since its promulgation.

Important issues, for instance, the separation of powers’ crisis, social inequality, economic policy, racism, public security and political renewal will be discussed. Keeping in mind the upcoming elections, Brazil Forum UK aims to bring to light a critical and well-informed perspective on the great challenges that the country has to overcome. We invite all to engage in this plural debate to seek innovative alternatives for the future of Brazil!
