In the wake of the long-anticipated meeting between Brazilian President Lula and US President Joe Biden in Washington, DC, both leaders agreed on several key areas of mutual collaboration in the coming years. Democracy and the environment were front and center, as the US showed the intention of supporting Brazil’s Amazon Fund, possible reforms to the UN Security Council, and cooperation in further strengthening democratic institutions.
How can US and Brazilian policymakers effectively deliver on the promises of this meeting? What are some short- and long-term outcomes that we can expect to see? And what are the broader regional and global implications of these bilateral policy proposals?
Join us on Wednesday, February 15, 2023, from 3:30 to 4:15 p.m. ET (17h30 to 18h15 BRT), for a public virtual discussion to unpack these key questions and look ahead to the future of US-Brazil relations.
