Drugs, Crime and Violence in Brazil

October 2 @ 6:10 pm - 8:00 pm

Brazil is the world’s most homicidal country. Over 65,000 people were murdered in 2017 and more than 6,000 citizens were killed by police in 2018. A significant proportion of Brazilians are also victimized, which undermines their faith in the legitimacy of the rule of law and democratic institutions. This presentation will highlight the scope and scale of Brazil’s public security crisis, the dangers of excessively repressive responses,  and the threats this poses to democracy.

Speaker: Ilona Szabó de Carvalho | Policy Fellow, Columbia University and Co-founder and Executive Director of the Igarapé Institute
