The Brazil Project aims at the creation of a network of academic and policy specialists to study processes of reform and sustainable social development in Brazil and neighboring countries. The project fosters its goals through symposia and international seminars, research, collaborative relations, and publications. These seek to better understand and evaluate on-going processes of economic and political reform, their efficiency in addressing societal needs, Brazil's new role in regional and world affairs, and how processes of globalization shape reform and the consolidation of democracy. The first track of this project concentrates on Brazil and Brazil-US relations; the second develops a comparative and regional perspective that includes Chile, Argentina, and other neighboring countries, as well as North America.
