Why subscribe?

Brazilian politics are complicated. There are many good articles in English about Brazil to be found on the web, but it’s near impossible to fully understand them if you don’t follow the country’s politics: there are just too many twists, often on a daily basis. My future ambition is to write daily on what’s happening in Brazil, but for now I only have time to write weekly. Even so, the idea here is to the give context and explain events, rather than opine.

By reading this newsletter, I hope to provide you with the tools necessary to better comprehend, for example, a piece about Brazil from that international relations magazine that you read, or fully appreciate an analysis on Brazilian trade relations by that think tank whose content you subscribe to.

Who am I?

My name is Clapton Jonsson. I am a graduate in Latin American Studies (Brazilian domestic politics) from Stockholm University and currently a Master’s student in International Relations (development and trade) at Pontifícia Universidade Católica (PUC) in Rio de Janeiro.
