Brazil’s Uncertain Future

11 December 2013 - 8:00am to 9:15am

Chatham House, London


Professor Victor Bulmer-Thomas CMG OBE, Associate Fellow, Americas, Chatham House



Brazil is one of the world's largest economies, but its economic growth has failed to meet projections. Following riots this year, and uncertainty over preparations for next year's World Cup, questions have arisen over Brazil's progress.

Professor Victor Bulmer-Thomas will examine Brazil's political and economic trajectory. He will contend that while there are still reasons to be positive, considering the country’s social advances, political elites should take recent unrest as a warning that reform is needed.

To enable as open a debate as possible this event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
