U.S. think tank promotes debate on Brazilian democracy in Washington, D.C.
Professor Oscar Vilhena Vieira, Dean of FGV’s Sao Paulo Law School (Direito SP) participates this Monday, April 8, at the Testing the Resilience of Brazil's Democracy event, to be held at the Wilson Center. The meeting will also be attended by Peter Messitte, Director of the Brazil-U.S. Legal & Judicial Studies Program of the American University Washington College of Law, and opened by Paulo Sotero, Director of the the Wilson Center’s Brazil Institute.
Vilhena is the author of the book A Batalha dos Poderes (“The Battle of the Powers”), which analyzes the conflicts between the three branches of government in Brazil in the last 30 years that shaped Brazilian democracy. The book was written, for the most part, during Vilhena’s time in Washington as a global fellow at the Brazil Institute and a visiting researcher in the Brazil-U.S. Legal & Judicial Studies Program. The English edition will be released next year.
The event will be broadcast live starting at 11:00 a.m. (Brasília time), through the website.
