CIPÓ speaks in the event ‘Brazil in the age of Bolsonaro’ promoted by the British think-tank Chatham House

On June 28 2021, CIPÓ Executive Director Adriana Abdenur spoke in the event “Brazil in the age of Bolsonaro”, promoted by the British think-tank Chatham House, which discussed  Brazil’s political evolution, economic recovery, and the 2022 presidential elections.

Whether over matters of COVID-19 infection rates, environmental concerns, or political polarization, Brazil has become a focus in the news of late. Against this background, the debate revolved around two main questions:

  • What explains the seeming political and policy upheaval in a country that a short decade ago was hailed as rising global power?
  • What are the implications for the 2022 presidential elections and Brazil’s economic growth?


  • Adriana Erthal Abdenur, Co-Founder and Executive Director, Plataforma CIPÓ; Member, UN Committee on Development Policy
  • Richard Lapper (author of the book “Beef, Bible and Bullets: Brazil in the Age of Bolsonaro” and Associate Member of Chatham House’s US and Americas Program)
  • Armínio Fraga (Former President of the Central Bank of Brazil, between 1999 and 2002).
