Brazil Seminar: Marcelo Medeiros – Social Inequality in Brazil
February 21st – Social Inequality in Brazil
Speaker: Marcelo Medeiros, Senior Research Scholar, Columbia SIPA
The Brazil Seminar is a practicum designed to discuss major economic, political, and social problems of contemporary Brazil with leading analysts, activists, business leaders, and public figures. The course is unusual in its reliance upon a stream of outside speakers rather than on a fixed syllabus and set of lectures by the instructor only. Former participants include cabinet members, senior representatives of international organizations, academics, civil society activists, and other world-class experts.
