IRGS Talk: Ecological De-modernization in Brazil

Event Date: 
Thursday, November 25, 2021 -

The Department of International Relations and Governance Studies invites you to a talk titled 'Ecological De-modernization in Brazil' by Professor Roldan Muradian, Faculty of Economics, Universidade Federal Fluminense, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on 25 November 2021 at 5:00 PM.

About the Talk
Since the Stockholm summit in 1972, we assumed that the environmental agenda was slowly but steadily rising worldwide, concomitantly with changes in social values that resulted in increasing environmental concerns. However, with the governments of Donald Trump in the US and Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil, both with openly anti-environmental policy proposals, there was clear a break of such a trend. The aim of this speech is to try to explain the foundation and expression of the anti-environmental movement in Brazil. Being a continental country and one of the major spots of biodiversity on the planet, policy decisions in Brazil have important global implications. The study of anti-environmentalism is also relevant since it seems to be a social phenomenon associated with the rise of the far-right movement worldwide.

About the Speaker
Prof. Roldan Muradian is originally from Venezuela. Currently, he is based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he teaches and conducts research at the Faculty of Economics at the Universidade Federal Fluminense. He has a multidisciplinary background in Biology and Social Sciences. He has worked at the Universities of Tilburg and Nijgemen, in the Netherlands. His recent work on ecological economics and the governance of global capitalism poses theoretical and cognitive questions to academics and policy makers alike.
