Rapid-Response: What's Next for Brazil?

Events | Headline and Cultural Forums

Already in the grips of the worst recession in more than 80 years, Brazil is experiencing its worst political stalemate since the transition to democracy in 1985. On Sunday, the lower house of Congress voted to impeach President Dilma Rousseff of the Workers’ Party (PT). Will the Senate take up the impeachment? How did this happen? Join Shawn Smallman (Professor of International and Latin American Studies, Portland State University and author of Fear and Memory in the Brazilian Military and Society, 1889-1954 and The AIDS Pandemic in Brazil) for a discussion on what could evolve into one of the bigger dramas shaping Brazil’s future.
