This year’s Brazil Week, an annual event series organised by the King's Brazil Institute, will be led by the Institute’s new Director Dr Vinicius De Carvalho. Although the COVID-19 pandemic necessitates an all-online programme, Dr De Carvalho stressed the Institute’s continued commitment to running these important events:
The week gets underway on Monday 25 January with an opening event and introduction to the programme. Highlights include a roundtable on Brazil’s continued role as an active global peacekeeping nation with speakers including Professor Funmi Olonisakin, a book launch for ‘Nothing by accident – Brazil on the edge’ by Damian Platt, and a special screening of 'Right now I want to scream' followed by a Q&A with the directors of the film.
Also to look forward to is a special public presentation of the King’s Brazil Institute’s new research groups, which focus on Governance, Leadership and Democracy; Diplomacy, Security and Defence; Culture, Society and Identities and Environment, Energy and Sustainability.
