Halfway through Jair Bolsonaro's government, DRCLAS invited three Brazilian experts to take stock of democracy in their country. What is the state of Brazil's democratic institutions? How have the Brazilian people reacted to what many call the first far-right government in major democracies? What should we expect for the next two years?
