The 2018 Elections in Brazil

Join us to hear a panel of specialists analyse the likely composition and direction of the new Brazilian government to be inaugurated in January.

Co-organised by the King's Brazil Institute and Canning House

The 2018 elections in Brazil are perhaps the most wide-open and unpredictable since 1989. Coming two years after the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff of the Workers’ Party and taking place against the backdrop of a wide-ranging anti-corruption investigation, a brutal recession in 2015-16, sharp political polarization, and popular dissatisfaction with elected officials and established political parties, these elections will shape the course of the country for the next four years.

Join us to hear a panel of specialists analyse the composition of the new Congress, the results of the first round of the presidential election, the differences between the two presidential candidates in the second round, and the likely composition and direction of the new government that will be inaugurated in January.
