Justice and Democracy in Brazil

This book details the struggle to establish and maintain democracy and justice in Brazil after 2000. From 1964 to 1984, Brazil had a dictatorship, which was followed by democratic elections. Later, from 2003 to 2016, the nation enjoyed a very popular and democratic government under President Lula and President Dilma, who created many social and educational programs that raised 32 million people out of extreme poverty.

However, as this book highlights, since 2013, the nation has witnessed the rise of a very conservative movement, which led to the impeachment of President Dilma (2016), to the imprisonment of President Lula (2018) and to the election of a right-wing president, who represented a decline in democracy and rights from 2018 to 2022.

In 2022, we had new elections, with the victory of President Lula, who took office on January 1, 2023. This book advocates for a new period in Brazilian politics, with full democracy, respect for the rule of law and social justice.
