Launch of Brazilian Legislative Survey 2017

Timothy Power, Director of the Brazilian Studies Programme, and Cesar Zucco Jr. (Fundação Getúlio Vargas) have begun fieldwork for the 8th wave of the Brazilian Legislative Survey (BLS).

The BLS was launched by Power in 1990, during Brazil’s first democratically elected legislature, and has been replicated every four years since then. Survey questions cover ideology, public policy, political reform and international relations.

Since its inception, the BLS has received 1145 survey responses from 890 different Brazilian politicians of all persuasions.
