Dilma’s Second Term: What Lies Ahead for Brazil in 2015 and Beyond?

On 26 October Dilma Rousseff was re-elected as president by the narrowest margin in Brazilian history. Following this, join us to discuss what comes next for Dilma and her new cabinet.

Immediate challenges are rising inflation, a growing budget deficit and weak domestic economic growth. At the event we will also turn our attention to the potential challenges she and her administration will face, looking in detail at her Congressional support. We will debate what the government’s likely policies and priorities will be, asking what will change to what will remain the same.

We are delighted to be joined by Lucas de Aragão, partner and director of Arko Advice. The event will be chaired by Dr Peter Collecott CMG, Fmr British Ambassador to Brazil (2004-2008)

Lucas holds a BA in Political Science (UDF) and a MA in Elections and Government (Fordham University). Aragao has received four Pollie Awards, given by the American Association of Political Consultants to the best political consultancy works of the year. He has worked as an adviser to the Republican Party in the USA and recently worked in the Communications team of Marina Silva's presidential bid in Brazil. Lucas has given dozens of lectures in Brazil and around the world on the Brazilian political and electoral scenario.
