ONE-DAY SYMPOSIUM – THE STRUGGLE AGAINST POVERTY IN BRAZIL UNDER LULA AND DILMA: THE CHALLENGES AHEAD

 CENTRE FOR BRAZILIAN AND LATIN AMERICAN STUDIES (MIDDLESEX UNIVERSITY)

A host of specialists will address diverse aspects of the poverty-eradication policies under the presidencies of Lula and Dilma. It is widely known that the various income redistribution policies undertaken by these PT administrations, the impressive figure of 25 million Brazilians have been taken out of poverty. No small feat. However, there remain many challenges ahead: Are Brazil’s current rates of economic growth sustainable in the future? Are the current poverty-eradication policies sustainable in the long term? Is povertyeradiction accompanied by the generation of employment? Are the current poverty-eradication policies sufficient to eliminate the social exclusion, discrimination and social marginalization characteristic of Brazilian society?
