Bouncing back? Domestic and international challenges to Brazilian development

Brazil is in the midst of a crisis characterized by severe economic recession and dwindling political legitimacy of several governmental actors and institutions. At the same time, its international surroundings are changing fast with Trump in the White House, a pro-active China and changing political scenarios in neighboring countries.
