On July 1, 2019, exactly six months after Bolsonaro’s inauguration, the Brazil Institute held a discussion with Maurício Moura, Andrea Murta, Monica de Bolle, and Thiago de Aragão on the Brazilian government’s performance in the first semester of 2019. The event also served to celebrate the release of A eleição disruptiva: Por que Bolsonaro venceu (The Disruptive Election: Why Bolsonaro Won), in which Maurício Moura and Juliano Corbellini examine how a relatively unimportant, far-right congressman came to be president of Brazil, and what that means for the government and its agenda.
