Poverty Eradication, what a challenge!

Poverty inhabits different places and bodies, each one with different sociocultural, geographical, and historically variable dimensions and meanings.

Citizen participation in Brazil: Anthropology’s insights

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?

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.
