Cuba and Brazil are the two countries were the ones that received the biggest number of black enslaved Africans and the last nations to abolish slavery officially.

Radical Right-Wing Populism (RWP) is a phenomenon that has been introduced previously in Latin America. In periods of economic crisis, the fight against inflation was another hallmark of right-wing populist appeals. Nevertheless, nativism, the core feature of RRP, was largely missing in earlier cases of RWP in Latin America. Nonetheless, Bolsonaro is as much a symptom of a broader trend as he is a consequence of recent Brazilian history.
Looking at Latin America, the criterion to define populism needs to be revised. Nativism and ethnopluralism seem out of place in a region where the concept of a homogenous nation-state never took hold and where mestizaje is a cultural ideal. This is not to say that nativism has to be dropped as a definitional criterion for the Latin American far-right. There are notable ideological overlaps with the European and North American New Right, for example, concerning immigration, which is a controversial issue in South America. There are also offenses against ethnic and cultural minorities, and nationalist rhetoric is pervasive.
Poverty inhabits different places and bodies, each one with different sociocultural, geographical, and historically variable dimensions and meanings. A process full of comings and goings, associated with the complex and profound transformations of the international scene, admitting different, if not divergent, interpretations and readings.
We collected daily tweets spanning from October 3rd to October 29th of 2022 (the day after the second turn elections in Brazil) for each one of the candidates running in the Brazilian second turn presidential elections. Tweets were collected from both candidates' timelines and Twitter users mentioning the candidates, totaling more than 69 million tweets, the largest volume of monthly data obtained since the beginning of our survey. We extracted the data through a Twitter API used exclusively for academic purposes and analyzed using R software.

In recent years, political scientists, public policy managers, and other bureaucrats at different levels dealt with incredibly contradictory processes in the formulation of public policies, especially in the federal government.
The government of Jair Messias Bolsonaro (2019-2022) reversed the logic of formulation and implementation of public […]
Talking about participation in Brazil is not an easy task. But a movement gained strength with the Covid-19 pandemic: digital participation, a context in which the emergence of democratic innovations stands out, as well as the migration of more traditional tools, such as councils, to the online format. Would online be a solution for increasing citizen participation in Brazil? My argument is that, for those who defend participation as an end, moving online can be a good strategy to insert layers excluded from participation. However, the individual perspective and sociological reduction must be employed in any investigation.
Taking office a few weeks ago, the new National Congress will dictate the course of Brazilian politics, economy, and society in the coming years. President Lula (PT) is very interested in maintaining a good relationship with deputies and senators, given the great challenges facing the country. It will not be an easy task, however.
