The recent (post-2000) socio-political development of Brazil is characterized by a ‘boom and bust’ cycle, not only in economic terms but also with respect to democracy, social justice, and international standing. Whereas the previous decade was marked by a more inclusive pattern of economic growth, reduction of poverty and inequality, and vibrant debates on the expansion and diversification of citizenship, after 2010 mass protests, economic decline, and political turmoil set the stage for a ‘neoconservative turn’ of which the election, in October 2018, of an extreme right wing politician to the presidency has been the most visible (but certainly not the only) consequence.
