Brazil: Breaking an Addiction to Bad Governance

A Conversation with Matias Spektor

Recorded in January 2019

Global Futures is a podcast about global politics and how rising powers like China and India are transforming it. We discuss foreign policy, economics, war and peace, and how the world is changing with experts from across the world.

Since the beginning of January 2019, Brazil has new president - Jair Bolsonaro - a right-wing, conservative, nationalist whose beliefs in country, God, and anti-corruption swayed many to vote him into Brazil’s highest office.

In this episode Joel Sandhu from the Global Public Policy Institute (GPPi) sits down with Matias Spektor exactly a year after their first conversation. Matias Spektor is an Associate Professor and Associate Dean of Fundação Getulio Vargas’s School of International Relations. He is also one of Brazil’s leading lights on matters of Brazilian foreign and domestic policies.
