At the beginning of the 21st century, Brazil rises as one of the emerging countries with rapid economic development. This phenomenon coincides with the intensification of globalization and is not limited to purely economic aspects, but includes social and political implications.
This is the subject of a panel I am honoured to coordinate at the Brazilianist in Europe Congress. We propose to address complementary views of economic development, where multiple disciplines melt: law, management, regulation, finance as well as history and even religion.
Adriano Albuquerque (Lisbon University) will talk about Brazilian entrepreneurship in Portugal. Adriano will explain the socio-economic transformations translating challenges for entrepreneurs and workers.
The challenges of Brazil in an unstable international economic order is the subject of Luiz Carlos Delorme Prado (Federal University of Rio de Janeiro – UFRJ)
Spirituality and entrepreneurship: comparative study between Spain, Portugal and Brazil is the subject of Clara Margaça (University of Salamanca). And informal economy will be discussed in The “problem” of street commerce as business: reflections from the case of Belo Horizonte by Tarcísio Araújo Filho (Federal University of São Carlos – UFSCar)
I will address the economic development drivers in Brazil from the 1990s until 2018.
Where and When
The panel will take place at 105 Boulevard Raspail, Paris room 10 at 1 pm on Wednesday 18th September 2019. Attendance is free.
