Inequalities in Brazil
Graziella Moraes Silva, Assistant Professor, Anthropology and Sociology of Development
Maison de la paix, Geneva
Brazil is commonly described as one of the most unequal countries in the world. Nevertheless, in recent decades, Brazil has also made headlines for innovations in poverty reduction and in recognising ethno-racial differences. This lunch briefing analyses the impact of these innovations in changing historical trends of inequality, as well as their intended and unintended consequences.
