Bouncing back? Domestic and international challenges to Brazilian development

Brazil is in the midst of a crisis characterized by severe economic recession and dwindling political legitimacy of governmental actors and institutions. At the same time, its international surroundings are changing fast with Trump in the White House, a pro-active China and changing political scenarios in neighboring countries.

What are Brazil’s prospects for economic and political recovery in this context? What are the domestic institutional and political conditions for it? How can key sectors, such as the oil and gas, contribute to this recovery? These are the issues that will be discussed in this morning seminar organized jointly by the Brazilian-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce (BNCC), the Norwegian institute for urban and regional research (NIBR/HiOA) and the Oslo Academy of Global Governance of the University of Oslo.
