HOW DO WE UNDERSTAND THE RISING POWERS OF BRAZIL, RUSSIA, INDIA AND CHINA?
By studying together.
In the last 20 years, there has been a shift in Brazil’s global economic and political role. Brazil has consolidated its reputation as a major economic and political actor in world affairs, while global economic momentum has shifted from the US and Europe towards the emerging, high-growth economies.
It is only fitting then that King’s College London has established the Institute to research, nurture and encourage the study of modern Brazilian society, politics, culture and economy in the UK. The Institute will promote greater understanding and exchange in an increasingly diverse global society.
The King’s Brazil Institute will engage with the challenges of modern Brazil by asking big questions about Brazil’s trajectory and future, and providing analysis that can help people think more creatively and constructively about contemporary Brazil.
The Institute represents a unique opportunity to site a major resource for the research, study and promotion of Brazil at a world-leading university, in one of the most multicultural cities in the world. London has a long tradition of blending international perspectives and King’s will draw on this proud heritage along with our Brazilian partners’ experience, skills and expertise, to develop a leading academic institution in the heart of the capital.
