  • Why did I join BRaS?” As Richard Nixon once famously remarked, “Where Brazil goes, Latin America will follow.” Currently, however, it is particularly difficult to know where Brazil will go. The research network BRaS is a way of dealing with this uncertainty by bringing together scholars from different research areas and facilitating the exchange of ideas about the future of Brazil.
