Media and Democracy Project

The project was launched in January 2023 with the main objective of facilitating in-depth discussions of crucial topics for Brazilian politics, including gender issues, racial disparities, minority groups’rights and hate speech.

The initiative involves systematic weekly monitoring of public discourse on social media, with the purpose of generating monthly resolutions to guide the project’s bimonthly meetings.

These meetings aim to formulate conclusive ideas for promoting social progress. FGV ECMI leads the execution of the project, while the FGV Rio de Janeiro Law School is responsible for making relevant analytical contributions,especially focused on gender-related issues. The project, which is expected to last for between one and three years, is actively encouraging high-quality public discourse and the strengthening of democratic principles.
