Political Institutions, Attitudes and Behavior: Brazil and Portugal in Comparative Perspective

This project has two main objectives:
1)    Developing research projects aimed at comparing Portugal and Brazil's political systems. This includes the study of their political institutions, of the political attitudes and behaviors of their masses, and of the nexus between representatives and voters). These projects will both produce new data and make use of existing ones.
2)    Promote academic training of graduate students (Masters and Doctoral students) of both ISCTE-IUL and IPOL-UnB by having them spend some time at both institutions. This exchange will allow graduate students to do short courses at either institution and receive advising from professor of ISCTE-IUL and IPOL-UnB. This project also promotes short visits of faculty at both institutions to present research results and provide specific graduate training.
