Foreign and Commonwealth Office training
We deliver training courses for Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) staff working on Brazil. The programme is taught by our academic staff and covers the economy, history and politics, and social conditions of Brazil, as well as the country’s defence and security sector.
Diplomats from the FCO that have graduated from this course include the current Ambassador to Brazil, Vijay Rangarajan, the former Ambassador, Alex Ellis, the current Consul General in São Paulo, Jo Crellin, and various members of staff in the British Embassy in Brasilia, as well as the consulates in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.
In addition to the short course, our staff have given several seminars on Brazil at the FCO that have been attended by diplomats working on a wide variety of issues.
