About this book

​This book discusses the issues of citizen rights, governance and political crisis in Brazil. The project has a focus on “citizenship in times of crisis,” i.e., seeking to understand how citizenship rights have changed since the Brazilian political and economic crisis that started in 2014. Building on theories of citizenship and governance, the author examines policy-based evidence on the retractions of participatory rights, which are consequence of a stagnant economic scenario and the re-organization of conservative sectors. This work will appeal to scholarly audiences interested in citizenship, Brazilian politics, and Latin American policy and governance.

Reviews

“This up-to-date and well-written book provides indispensable insights into Brazilian politics today. In particular, the book offers an essential analysis of the impact of the political changes of the 2000s and 2010s on Brazil’s participatory democracy. Highly recommended for anyone with an interest in Latin American politics”. (Marieke Riethof, University of Liverpool, UK)

“What has happened in the biggest world laboratory of democratic innovations? Valesca Lima’s book provides a timely and well documented answer to this question by exploring in depth the role of participatory institutions during the Workers Party government and after the impeachment to Dilma.” (Yanina Welp, University of Zurich, Switzerland)
