Legal resistance within the State

The theme of legal resistance within the State has an easy solution only at first sight – when we observe public servants (whoever they may be) acting in defense of democracy, the institutions of the rule of law, and the very security necessary for the affirmation of Federal Constitution.

Interview: Prof. Dr. Ulrich Brand & Prof. Dr. Markus Wissen

Edited and reviewed by Anna Paula Bennech and Giovanna Imbernon. "In The Imperial Mode of Living: Everyday Life and the Ecological Crisis of Capitalism, Ulrich Brand and Markus Wissen offer new perspectives about the links between everyday life and global inequalities. The authors show how an ‘imperial mode of living,’ broadly disseminated by Global North countries during their hegemonic actions carried out throughout the years, underpins inequalities, and relies upon the exploitation of people and resources from ‘somewhere else,’ mainly in the Global South."

The Literary Roots of the Purposeful Inferiorization of the Bumpkin in Brazil from a Post-Colonial Perspective

Foreign travelers who arrived in Brazil at the end of the 19th century described the natives of the land as poor, miserable, and ugly people. In contrast, the elite was outnumbered and did not see themselves as a part of the national culture. The Brazilian heterogeneity imposed an impasse: who could be called as the Brazilian people?

The ongoing (lack of) course of Brazilian foreign policy under Bolsonaro

Jair Bolsonaro's presidency marks a rupture with the century-old Brazilian diplomatic tradition dating back to the Baron of Rio Branco in the early twentieth century and the continuity of well-developed, balanced, pragmatic, and professional practices. Not only is Jair Bolsonaro the worst president in Brazilian history, but also responsible for what will certainly be acknowledged as the worst foreign policy.

Independence or (the) death (of institutions)

September 7th is one of the most important celebratory dates in Brazil. The value of independence and the release from the Portuguese monarchy meant that we could finally live by our own interests. Tomorrow, a series of protests pro-Bolsonaro are happening around the world to show support to the most rejected president in Brazil’s democratic history. These are also an effort of very noisy few to discredit institutions like the Federal Court and the Legislative Power. How can our institutions hold their trust and stop more far-right movements from getting to power and threatening democracy?

Governmentality, biopower, and the attack on fundamental rights in Brazil during the COVID-19 pandemic

A year ago, in March 2020, the health crisis caused by the new coronavirus officially reached the Brazilian territory, amplifying the current scenario of political and juridical instability in the country. This is certainly the most critical moment experienced by Brazilian democracy since the end of the dictatorial regime.

An overview on cutting public spending on Brazilian higher education

Since 2015, the Brazilian state has been making budget cuts in several areas that deal with fundamental human rights. One of them refers to education itself. The Brazilian state has been influenced and subjected to the discourse that the only way to recover the economy refers to austerity. Such argument, according to the same document, concerns the clear objective of redefining the role of the State to satisfy certain interests.

The Danger of Ridicule: Cultural War and public policies of the Bolsonaro government

While trying to understand the dramatic rupture and the erosion process of the young and fragile Brazilian democracy, as if it could even be considered one in such a brutally unequal country, especially with the "surprising" election of Jair Bolsonaro at that time elected by the PSL (Social Liberal Party) and who today due to tensions has no Party, experts, especially from Political Science, need to combine and draw on other areas to understand this process.
