Brazil in focus

21 January 2019

Brazil is a truly unique country. As the world’s fifth-largest country, it is rich with diversity and dazzling with vibrancy. The Brazil Institute hosted 'Brazil Week', celebrating a programme of events exploring the political, social and cultural highlights and challenges in Lati America's largest country.

The Brazil Institute has dedicated its time to pioneering research, digging below the surface of Brazilian life, since its launch over ten years ago. Its Director, Professor Anthony Pereira, explains why Brazil is such an interesting country and why it’s important to study the country in such depth.

From the centre of London to the favelas of Rio

Matthew Richmond studied for a PhD at both the Brazil Institute and Geography Department at King’s. From the favelas of Rio to the 'peripheries' of Sao Paulo, find out about his fascinating work and why he’s never left.
