Globalization and its Brazilian discontents: Pushbacks on climate and the environment in Brazil

Högre seminarium

Rarely does a country so rapidly descend in its level of global regard as has Brazil done in this start of the 21st century. From seemingly a model of economic development combined with effective poverty reduction, social inclusion and environmental protection, the country has swiftly turned into a global pariah under a far-right administration elected on a scathing campaign against human rights, conservation, and - to some extent - globalization. This presentation will discuss how, and to what extent, anti-globalization norms and interests have become forceful in Brazil for, while parallels are frequently drawn between Bolsonaro and Trump or even Brexit, there are also key differences to regard. It will discuss who the Brazilian discontents have been, have they have risen to power, and how the pushbacks against globalization - particularly on environmental issues ¿ are shaping up. However much global uproar has already taken place (e.g., from this year's Amazon fires), these unlikely custodians of the world's greatest ecosystem are only at the start of their term.
