Ground Truth Briefing: The Aftermath of the Impeachment Vote in Brazil

Podcast available

Podcast (Audio only)

The Brazilian Chamber of Deputies impending vote on Sunday to impeach President Dilma Rousseff opens a new phase in the crisis facing Latin America's largest democracy. The potential transition to a new government led by Vice-President Michel Temer will not be smooth. Temer, not a popular figure, has limited time and political space to gain confidence from citizens and investors and move the country away from a recession that has already cost more than 3 million jobs. Further complicating matters, criminal investigations on the Petrobras corruption scandal will continue to highlight to Brazilians the problems of political legitimacy exposed by the crisis.

Please join us by phone for a teleconference from São Paulo as four leading experts discuss this rapidly evolving situation.
