Tune in the morning after the vote for a reaction to three key questions and more: What are the domestic, regional, and international implications of Sunday’s results?How will Congressional composition impact governability for the next administration? In what ways may US-Brazil relations remain the same or change in the coming years?

As Latin America and the Caribbean’s largest economy and a key player on world politics, Brazil both illuminates the benefits and navigates the challenges of democracy and development. Since the turn of the century, Brazil has proven to be a strong democracy with a resilient economy and ever-evolving society. The future of the country is tied to continued efforts to further strengthen its democratic institutions, revitalize its economy, and reinforce its role on the global stage.
