About the Brazil Institute
Founded in 2006, the Brazil Institute—the only public policy institute in Washington dedicated to Brazil—seeks to foster dialogue on key issues of bilateral concern between Brazil and the United States, while advancing Washington’s understanding of the complexities of Brazil as a regional, democratic power and a global player. Through events, research, and other activities, the Institute’s initiatives bring together the public, private, and nonprofit spheres on a broad range of issues, including trade, science and technology, corruption and rule of law, democracy, and sustainability.
