The Path to Power in Brazil

Brazil’s current political earthquake makes projecting the future of power and politics in the country a very risky enterprise. But, we’re going to try anyway. The Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center has engaged Brazil’s best thinkers and behind-the-scenes players to place their bets and analyze what current trends tell us about the next months and years. Join us in this task of futurology and come discuss perspectives for the next Brazilian elections, the Lava Jato investigation, and interim president Michel Temer’s Administration over lunch on Wednesday, July 6th, at 12h30 p.m, at the Atlantic Council.

We’re joined by a special guest, former Brazilian Minister of Finance, former Governor of Ceará State and former presidential candidate Ciro Gomes, as well as our Nonresident Senior Brazil Fellow, Ricardo Sennes, and Brazilian pollster Mauricio Moura. During the event, we will also launch results of exclusive opinion poll questions about the direction of Brazilian politics and our latest policy brief, The Path to Power in Brazil.
