Brazil ahead of the 2018 elections

05-10-2018

On 7 October 2018, about 147 million Brazilians will go to the polls to choose a new president, new governors and new members of the bicameral National Congress and state legislatures. If, as expected, none of the presidential candidates gains over 50 % of votes, a run-off between the two best-performing presidential candidates is scheduled to take place on 28 October 2018. Brazil's severe and protracted political, economic, social and public-security crisis has created a complex and polarised political ...

On 7 October 2018, about 147 million Brazilians will go to the polls to choose a new president, new governors and new members of the bicameral National Congress and state legislatures. If, as expected, none of the presidential candidates gains over 50 % of votes, a run-off between the two best-performing presidential candidates is scheduled to take place on 28 October 2018. Brazil's severe and protracted political, economic, social and public-security crisis has created a complex and polarised political climate that makes the election outcome highly unpredictable. Pollsters show that voters have lost faith in a discredited political elite and that only anti-establishment outsiders not embroiled in large-scale corruption scandals and entrenched clientelism would truly match voters' preferences. However, there is a huge gap between voters' strong demand for a radical political renewal based on new faces, and the dramatic shortage of political newcomers among the candidates. Voters' disillusionment with conventional politics and political institutions has fuelled nostalgic preferences and is likely to prompt part of the electorate to shift away from centrist candidates associated with policy continuity to candidates at the opposite sides of the party spectrum. Many less well-off voters would have welcomed a return to office of former left-wing President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (2003-2010), who due to a then booming economy, could run social programmes that lifted millions out of extreme poverty and who, barred by Brazil's judiciary from running in 2018, has tried to transfer his high popularity to his much less-known replacement. Another part of the electorate, appalled by growing public-security issues and endemic corruption, but also disappointed with democracy more broadly, appears to be strongly attracted by the simple and unconventional answers to complex challenges posed by far-right populist rhetoric. The latter – worryingly – glorifies Brazil's dictatorship (1964-1985). As candidates with unorthodox political approaches appear to be an emerging norm, Brazilians may opt for a populist turn as well. If so, EU-Brazil relations may become more complex in the future.

The situation of indigenous children with disabilities

18-12-2017

Indigenous children with disabilities (ICwD) have received little attention in academic research and development policies. However, they face discrimination at many levels, based on ethnicity, age, ability and gender and this often leads to serious human rights violations. The lack of data, both on the prevalence of disabilities among indigenous children and young people and on specific violations of their human rights, is a serious constraint to any policy intended to respect, protect and promote ...

Indigenous children with disabilities (ICwD) have received little attention in academic research and development policies. However, they face discrimination at many levels, based on ethnicity, age, ability and gender and this often leads to serious human rights violations. The lack of data, both on the prevalence of disabilities among indigenous children and young people and on specific violations of their human rights, is a serious constraint to any policy intended to respect, protect and promote their human rights. This study seeks to identify these gaps, point to certain patterns and recommend ways of improving data collection and the situation of ICwD in future.

Openness of public procurement markets in key third countries

04-07-2017

This report assesses the openness of public procurement markets in key third countries of interest to the EU. It provides a comparative overview of the regulatory and market access characteristics of the US, Brazil, India, China, Japans’ procurement markets, with reference to the procurement regulation and enforcement within the EU. The report assesses the available data on both the de jure and de facto levels of openness of these markets to put forward some conclusions of value to policy making ...

This report assesses the openness of public procurement markets in key third countries of interest to the EU. It provides a comparative overview of the regulatory and market access characteristics of the US, Brazil, India, China, Japans’ procurement markets, with reference to the procurement regulation and enforcement within the EU. The report assesses the available data on both the de jure and de facto levels of openness of these markets to put forward some conclusions of value to policy making both within the EU and in its trading relations with key third countries. This assessment concludes that the lack of comprehensive comparable data on procurement contract awards, particularly at the sub-central level, is not a trivial challenge for policy makers. Nevertheless, it is evident that the liberalisation of procurement markets continues to take place on a strictly reciprocal basis – linked to the offensive interests of governments. Given the slow-down in negotiating mega-regional agreements with comprehensive procurement chapters, the WTO Government Procurement Agreement remains the most efficient and transparent forum for undertaking further liberalisation in public procurement.

Brazil's humanitarian policy

17-05-2016

Brazil has been referred to as an emerging player in humanitarian policy, shaping its action largely on the basis of its own domestic social policies, particularly in the area of food and health. Yet the recent economic crisis raises doubts as to its ability to sustain its contributions.

Relations commerciales entre l'UE et l'Amérique latine: Synthèse et données

11-03-2016

Ces dernières années, les relations commerciales entre l'Union et les pays d'Amérique latine sont revenues au premier plan. Ensemble, les pays constituant la Communauté des États latino-américains et des Caraïbes (CELAC) représentent le cinquième partenaire commercial de l'Union. L'Union a conclu des accords avec deux groupes de pays d'Amérique latine (le Cariforum et le groupe d'Amérique centrale) ainsi qu'avec quatre pays d'Amérique latine (Mexique, Chili, Pérou et Colombie). Les accords de libre-échange ...

Ces dernières années, les relations commerciales entre l'Union et les pays d'Amérique latine sont revenues au premier plan. Ensemble, les pays constituant la Communauté des États latino-américains et des Caraïbes (CELAC) représentent le cinquième partenaire commercial de l'Union. L'Union a conclu des accords avec deux groupes de pays d'Amérique latine (le Cariforum et le groupe d'Amérique centrale) ainsi qu'avec quatre pays d'Amérique latine (Mexique, Chili, Pérou et Colombie). Les accords de libre-échange conclus par l'Union avec les pays d'Amérique latine diffèrent considérablement sur le plan des domaines couverts et de la méthodologie en fonction de l'époque où ils ont été conclus et du contexte des négociations. L'Union souhaite à présent moderniser les ALE les plus anciens, conclus avec le Mexique et le Chili, afin de les aligner sur les normes actuelles des ALE de l'Union. Toutefois, les négociations de longue date relatives à un accord commercial complet avec le Mercosur — dont la conclusion signifierait que l'Union dispose d'accords commerciaux avec la quasi-totalité de l'Amérique latine — doivent encore trouver leur rythme de croisière.

This study provides an implementation monitoring tool which allows for a systematic overview of review and monitoring clauses, sunset clauses as well as management and implementation clauses that are included in international agreements concluded between the EU and third countries. As an implementation monitoring tool, this study intends to provide a systematic overview of review and monitoring clauses, sunset clauses as well as management and implementation clauses present in international agreements which are concluded between the EU and third countries. While the review and monitoring clauses refer to the process of assessing the implementation of international agreements, the sunset clauses refer to the duration of international agreements. The management and implementation clauses describe the composition of the body in charge of supervising the management of the agreement and eventually define special procedures for the management or implementation of the agreements.

Brazil's ambitions in climate change policy

Brazil: Economic situation

30-10-2015

Following a cycle of steady growth at the end of the last decade, the Brazilian economy began to contract in 2011, and entered a technical recession in 2015. Declining exports, rising inflation, a growing deficit and corruption have destabilised the economy. Its future course will depend on fiscal adjustment, inflation control and on bolstering the economy's credibility.
