Brazil: inclusive sustainable development?

Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE
Speaker: Brazilian Minister for Strategic Affairs, Marcelo Neri
Chair: Professor James Putzel

About the event

Minister Neri will talk about the growth of social welfare in Brazil during the last twenty years, and its determinants. How have growth and distribution of incomes evolved in Brazil? What has been the role played by various public policies (such as income transfers, housing, technical education etc)? How have different groups (organized by gender, race, region etc) performed? Is Brazil becoming a middle class country? What about the middle income trap with respect to other BRICS countries? How sustainable are the observed changes? What is the new agenda on social policies in the country for the next 10 years?
