The first round of the Brazilian presidential election is scheduled for October 2, 2022. The two frontrunners are the far-right current president, Jair Bolsonaro, and the leftist former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, who was in power between 2003 and 2010. 

Join an interdisciplinary panel of experts to discuss the first-round results, their implications for Brazilian democracy, and what we in the United States can do to support democracy in Brazil.
