During the period of the presidential elections in Brazil in the automn 2018, Miriam Grosssi, Carmen Rial, and Paola Bacchetta were at the Federal University of Santa Catarina, and together with other researchers created a network of vigilance and solidarity against extreme right in Brazil, but also in the United States, France, etc.
This election, which saw Jair Bolsonaro come to power, corroborated the urgency at a time when we are witnessing the installation of extreme right everywhere. Before Bolsonaro on Brazil, there was Trump in the United States, Salvini in Italy, adding others already at the top of destructive and authoritarian states and recently reconducted such as Orban in Hungary, Erdogan in Turkey, Colombia, Russia, Israel, Austria, Poland...
The encounter will look at the situation in Brazil and how it has evolved since last autumn, in relation to the political and social history of Brazil and South America, and other regions of the world, and will offer elements of analysis of the various forms of repression that have taken place and emerging forms of resistance rooted in the most direct experiences of what is happening, and which cross borders.
