Governance, Leadership and Democracy

Brazil emerged from 21 years of authoritarian rule in the mid-1980s, part of a global wave of democratisation. This research group explores the transition to democracy, the quality of democracy, transitional justice and human rights, and debates about threats and improvements to democracy in contemporary Brazil. Using comparative and global perspectives, researchers in this group examine democratic practices, institutions, discourses, and reforms.
