US Network for Democracy in Brazil inaugurates Brazil Talk’s series of events

In 2021, Brazil Talk inaugurates a brand new format of events, in which urgent topics about Brazil’s global positioning will be addressed by leading scholars and practitioners, to a hand-picked audience.

Brazil Talk believes that the current social, political and economic crises in Brazil demand a more careful strategy in the policymaking processes of other global actors, such as the United States and multilateral institutions. In a policy paper addressed to the White House, the US Network for Democracy in Brazil provides a fundamental step in that direction, and the whole international community would benefit a lot from delving into its insights.

In the conversation, co-sponsored by Columbia University’s Institute of Latin American Studies, we will also take the opportunity of debating the “Recommendations on Brazil to President Biden and the News Administration” paper to hear more about the US Network for Democracy in Brazil, its agenda, its trajectory, as well as its challenges and opportunities.

Joining the conversation, key members of USNDB’s leadership will share some of their insights and experience on how to address the issue of Brazilian development and democracy in the context of American national conversation:

Juliana de Moraes Pinheiro
Executive Director, Washington Office | US Network for Democracy in Brazil

Gladys Mitchell-Walthour

Professor, University of Wisconsin Milwaukee

James N. Green
