Brazil Seminar: Conservation and Environmental Policy in Brazil

Speaker: Jose Maria da Silva, Professor and Chair of Geography and Sustainable Development, University of Miami, and Former Executive Vice President, Conservation International

International Affairs Building, Room IAB 405A


Brazil Seminar is a practicum designed to discuss contemporary Brazil's major economic, political, and social problems with leading analysts, activists, business leaders, and public figures. The seminar is unusual in its reliance upon a stream of outside speakers rather than on a fixed syllabus and set of lectures by the instructor only. Former participants include cabinet members, senior representatives of international organizations, academics, civil society activists, and other world-class experts.


We will primarily focus on economic and financial issues while addressing social and political factors during the spring term. We also prioritize a practitioner’s perspective, using Brazil as a reference to discuss challenges that developing nations face in their development path.


This event will be live-streamed on the ILAS Youtube page.
