Monday 21 October, 5-6.30pm

The impressive performance of Luiz Inacio 'Lula' da Silva in the first round of the Brazilian elections, and his high chances of winning the second round, have had already an impact on different aspects of Brazilian domestic politics as well as on the region. A potential Workers' Party administration may imply a change of direction that will affect Brazil and its neighbours.

  • Celso Amorim will focus on the domestic implications
  • Dr Francisco Panizza will look at the political implications
  • Dr George Philip, the impact of the elections on Latin America,
