Presented by Georgetown University and the Washington Brazil Office (WBO)
The Brazil in Transition conference that was held in Washington on October 19 and 20 by GU and the Washington Brazil Office (WBO) became a valuable meeting point between academics and representatives of civil society organizations and movements interested in debating the rapid and profound transformations that Brazil is going through.
For two days fifteen experts in economic development, racism, human rights, the environment, indigenous issues, democracy and crime took turns participating on five thematic panels on campus. The conference was broadcast live on the internet and the complete content – both from the 19th and 20th of October – remains available in full.
