After sixteen years of stable democratic governance and eight years of federal rule by the progressive Workers’ Party, Brazil seems about to take up a new role as a regional leader and an emerging global power. But has this new Brazil really begun to effectively address the many problems the country has been facing over the past half century? In consideration of the presidential election this year, this one day international conference Brazil under Lula: a Country in Transformation aims to review and discuss from a scholarly perspective the public policies of the past eight years in the context of a broader process of transformations in Brazil and in the world.

Economic development
Poverty alleviation
Social policies
