Pact for Rio: FGV and IDP hold seminar on socioeconomic and security renewal

FGV Knowledge and the Brazilian Institute for Education, Development and Research (IDP), with the support of the Brazil-Europe Integration Forum (FIBE), Globo, Aegea and Columbia University, are holding a seminar called “Pact for Rio,” at which experts and public officials will debates solutions for Rio de Janeiro. The event will take place on February 23, from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the FGV Cultural Center in Rio de Janeiro.

The Pact for Rio is a joint initiative of FGV Knowledge and IDP, supported by FIBE, Globo, Aegea and Columbia University. It aims to discuss and tackle the challenges of inequality, climate change and public security, which affect the people of Rio de Janeiro.

The event’s opening session will be attended by Mayor Eduardo Paes, Governor Claudio Castro, Federal Supreme Court justice Gilmar Mendes and racial equality minister Anielle Franco. Other speakers at the event will include the president of the Federal Supreme Court, Luís Roberto Barroso.

Overcoming the major problems affecting the state and city of Rio de Janeiro is only possible through a pact that unites the public authorities, private sector entities and civil society in favor of an agenda for transformation. The event will have five panel discussions to address issues ranging from broad reflections on global public security governance to more specific topics that more directly affect Rio’s people and locations.

The guest speakers will include Zachary Tumin, professor of public and international relations at Columbia University, who will present the New York Police Department’s experience of zero tolerance policing. One of the panel discussions will look at the role of infrastructure improvements, which generate jobs and economic development. It will feature representatives of power company Light, water company Águas do Rio and community leaders.

The role of justice and public institutions will also be debated, as well as land issues and systemic actions in communities and shanty towns. The final panel discussion will present data and discuss the impact of crime on education, health and society, as well as the media’s important role in raising public awareness.
