Brazil100: Exploring President Lula's First 100 Days

Bruna Santos

The Brazil Institute's project, Brazil 100, explores the implications of Lula's first 100 days in office.

The first 100 days of government are critical in setting the tone and direction for the rest of the term. It is a time when the new government is formed, and the legislative agenda is set. This is especially true in the case of Brazil, where President Lula has been elected for his third term. He takes office facing a divided nation and facing economic headwinds. 

The Brazil Institute's project, Brazil 100, explores the implications of Lula's first 100 days in office. The project's interviews, podcasts, and articles will focus on the country's key challenges and the political landscape, including sluggish economic growth, poverty, deforestation, and climate change. Through this project, our audience can gain insight into the strategies and policies that their new president is taking to address these issues.  

President Lula will lead a deeply divided nation and has pledged to reactivate and boost policies to address the economic and social inequalities in the country, as well as tackle the challenges of climate change and environmental conservation.

Brazil100 is a project led by the Brazil Institute in collaboration with the Brazilian Report.
