Girl’s Feminism – networks of Power and Coping

In mid-2015, São Paulo students started a movement to occupy public schools in protest of the project to restructure the state school system. Generally speaking, the restructuring consisted of relocating students, especially high school ones, to fight the closure of several teaching units in the state of São Paulo to centralize students in schools appointed by teaching leaders, without considering the places of work and housing of students. The strong pressure from students across the state led the government to repeal the project, ending student actions in the state.

The Brazil brand with an S is back

A country brand seeks consistency of national and international reputation based on people's experiences – for competitive positioning. Many are the expectations in the mind or the behavior of each person about Brazil, its places, its citizens, and its products. The management of the place brand is based on the promise of the brand identity and the allusions of the brand image of the country, region, or city. This promise is planned and executed by the brand management, established so that the essential meanings of the brand name itself, its core attributes, characteristics, values, and culture prevail.

Lula at COP 27: Prospects for Brazil’s foreign climate policy

Because of Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva's electoral victory on 30 October, it was decreed that Brazilian domestic policy should, after having gone off course, be taken again in the opposite direction. This means as the president-elect said in his victory speech, a project for Brazil opposite to that of Jair Bolsonaro's government. Lula's presence at COP 27 was marked by important bilateral meetings and a statement in which he made clear that the domestic change in his country would also be reflected in his foreign policy. The climate agenda, which was left out during four years of Jair Bolsonaro's government, will take a central role in the new government.

The pocket and the ballot box

The relationship between elections and money is complex and involves a series of predispositions about what we consider to be politics and politicians. The relationship between economic power and political power is sensitive, and since at least the turn of the 19th to the 20th century, it has been the subject of research in the Social Sciences. Discussing elections and money matters because election campaigns are not free; relationships between donors and politicians can lead to paid compromises later, and resource flows indicate power relationships.

The democratic consolidation of Brazil and the legacy of the military regime

This article discusses the democratic consolidation of the Brazilian political culture. Thereby it reviews the literature and presents some own empirical analysis on regime preferences and understandings of democracy based on the seventh wave of the World Values Survey. The findings show that although high support of democracy can be measured, the process of democratic consolidation is still in the making because authoritarian alternatives like a military regime are continously supported by broader segments of the population.

Colonialism and Brazil: a brief analysis of the country’s involvement in the rush for Oceania

Colonialism was a political doctrine that emerged in the 16th century, based on the occupation of foreign lands by other nations. This political doctrine lasted for almost five hundred years and began to decline along with the end of the Second World War, with the long and heterogeneous Afro-Asian decolonization process. It is possible to divide this long-term phenomenon into four phases: mercantile colonialism, exploration of Oceania, colonial imperialist capitalism, and the division of the wealth and resources of the former Turkish-Ottoman Empire. This article analyzes, using the bibliographic revision as methodology, the role played by Brazil within the phase of exploration of Oceania.
