CIC National Capital (Ottawa): Lula is Back: Prospects and Challenges for the new Brazilian Government
January 17 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm ESTFree
The recent election of Lula da Silva as President of Brazil, for what will be his third term in the office, marks a dramatic change in the political leadership of the country. Having defeated Jair Bolsonaro who governed from a right-wing, self-styed Trumpist perspective, Lula will represent a significant change in emphasis for Brazil. The country faces difficult challenges ranging from the economy, climate change and the environment, poverty and security that will test the Lula administration.
The Latin America and Caribbean Study Group is pleased to bring together a group of experts to discuss prospects for the start of Lula’s third presidency.
