Reflections on President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva’s Visit to Washington
On February 10, President Biden and Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva met at the White House to discuss how the United States and Brazil can jointly combat climate change, strengthen democratic institutions and bolster economic development, marking a new phase in U.S.-Brazil relations.
Please join the Wilson Center’s Brazil Institute on Tuesday, February 14, from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (ET) for an in-person conversation on the implications of President Lula da Silva’s visit to Washington and the future of U.S.-Brazil relations.
The Brazil Institute—the only country-specific policy institution focused on Brazil in Washington—works to foster understanding of Brazil’s complex reality and to support more consequential relations between Brazilian and U.S. institutions in all sectors. The Brazil Institute plays this role by producing independent research and programs that bridge the gap between scholarship and policy, and by serving as a crossroads for leading policymakers, scholars and private sector representatives who are committed to addressing Brazil’s challenges and opportunities.
