Special edition – Brazil’s Democratic “Backsliding”: “Conservative in customs and neoliberal in economics”: the tragedy of Bolsonaro-Guedes economic policies in Brazil

Organized by Flavia Batista da Silva. Edited and reviewed by Anna Paula Bennech and Giovanna Imbernon. "If Bolsonaro's consistent polarizing, racist, sexist, and anti-democratic remarks were not enough to prevent people from casting their vote for him in 2018, perhaps his blatant economic failures in the last three years – and particularly during the pandemic – will have such an effect."

Special edition – Brazil’s Democratic “Backsliding”: The Erosion of Brazilian Democracy in Pandemic Times – Effects on Race and Class

Organized by Flavia Batista da Silva. Edited and reviewed by Anna Paula Bennech and Giovanna Imbernon. "The COVID-19 pandemic can be classified as the most significant health crisis in the last hundred years (Paula dos Reis et al., 2020). Some international organizations have been predicting this event for decades; this pandemic is not the first one and will not be the last global health crisis (De Freitas Lima Ventura and Costa Bueno, 2021). Still, most of the countries are struggling to deal with it. For the Brazilian democracy, the pandemic only escalated the debilitation of the yet unstable democratic regime."

Special edition – Brazil’s Democratic “Backsliding”: It is worse than imagined

Organized by Flavia Batista da Silva. Edited and reviewed by Anna Paula Bennech and Giovanna Imbernon. "The current worldwide democracy crisis is not unexpected. In 2020, the Global Satisfaction with Democracy Report was published concerning news for democratic regimes (Centre for the Future of Democracy, 2020). Covering over 154 countries, Brazil included, it was the first time throughout the past 25 years that the world has spoken how unsatisfied it is with democracy. Since 1990, the share of individuals who are "dissatisfied" with democracy has risen by 10% points, from 47.9% to 57.5%. This raise represents the highest level of democratic discontent. Why are citizens so discontent with democracy? Why is Brazil at its highest-ever recorded level for democratic dissatisfaction?"

Special edition – Brazil’s Democratic “Backsliding”: why should we fear Bolsonaro’s government in Brazil?

Organized by Flavia Batista da Silva. Edited and reviewed by Anna Paula Bennech and Giovanna Imbernon. "The 33-old-Brazilian democracy is under severe threat. Bolsonaro is particularly helping to backslide the yet unconsolidated system by using his power to weaken important democratic institutions and discredit the electoral system. The effects of his anti-democracy playbook are especially apparent now amidst the COVID-19 pandemic's mismanagement in Brazil. Institutional and economic crises, social inequality aggravation, and corruption scandals are some of the consequences of Bolsonaro's aggrandizement and manipulation."
