The early 2000s was a time of immense optimism and growth in Brazil under the leadership of Presidents Luiz Inácio da Silva and his successor Dilma Rousseff, both of the Brazilian Workers Party. Corruption scandals, however, led to the impeachment of Rousseff in 2016 and the imprisonment of Lula in 2018. In January 2019, Jair Bolsonaro became President of Brazil, marking a significant shift to the right in Brazilian politics. Join Active Minds as we explore Brazil’s bumpy political ride and what it may suggest for the future of the largest nation in South America.
