Event Type: Lecture
Speaker Information: Marcia Lima
How have race relations and inequalities been treated in Brazil? Has the situation of inequalities changed in recent decades? If so, how have those changes been interpreted? Considering its recent past, Brazil went through transformations that reset the racial inequality studies. These changes were part of structural transformations but also represented the impact of social policies. Broad structural changes with concern to demographic and economic features and the specific transformations are linked to social policies that target porr adn black people in two different ways: facing inqualities of conditions (poverty) and facing inequalities of opportunities (social mobility through higher education).
