Social protection policy in Brazil is a historically built patchwork of programmes that pay different values to people in the same situation, leaves many unprotected (in particular, 17 million children) and is fraught with duplications and other inefficiencies. This publication proposes an approach through which all transfers to individuals vulnerable to poverty and children can be brought together within a single framework.

The Brazilian city of Marica recently launched a basic-income program that gives $33 monthly stipends to about one-third of its residents. Brazil already has a national policy that gives citizens around $10 per month if they vaccinate their children and send them to school.  But Marica's program will allow researchers to study how basic income affects local employment — specifically, whether it encourages people to join the labor market.

SAO PAULO — The Senate gave final congressional approval Tuesday to an overhaul of Brazil’s pension system, capping years of stalled efforts to sway public opinion and rein in unsustainable government spending on retirement. The Senate voted 60-19 to adopt changes for civil servants and private-sector workers, handing President Jair Bolsonaro his first major legislative victory. He proposed the constitutional amendment in February and, after some watering down, Congress’ lower house gave its approval in August.

Information transparency is a key element for Brazil’s South-South cooperation initiatives to garner national support and legitimacy and for the country to be accountable to its partners and to society. Due to this, the first edition of “Briefing” points a new debate: use of public information systems to understand and make visible Brazilian South-South cooperation. Data, nowaday available for public consultation are sufficient? Measuring initiatives of South-South cooperation circumscribe singularities of Brazilian proceedings?
