For the #05 episode of the Diálogos Mecila we invited researchers Peter Birle (Mecila Principal Investigator, IAI), Camila Rocha (Cebrap) and Fernando Baldraia (Mecila former Postdoctoral Researcher) to debate conservatism in Brazil, USA and India.
The rise of conservative regimes throughout the world is no longer a new phenomenon. How did the new or radical right conceived itself as a kind of counterpublic? What roles do sexism, masculinism and nationalism play in contexts such as that of Brazil, India and the United States? And how are international relations being affected by the discourses and actions of leaders such as Jair Bolsonaro?
