Brazil Forum UK is a conference created and organised by a group of Brazilian students in the United Kingdom. The event has been happening every year since 2016 in the London School of Economics and Political Science and the University of Oxford.
We are a non-profit organisation which endeavours to create a democratic environment to discuss Brazil’s most urgent and relevant issues in way that includes different parts of society.
Since 2016, Brazil Forum UK has been expanding the debate on subjects relevant to Brazilian society.
Despite several issues have already been addressed, gathering perspectives from prominent specialists, four of them remain as our pillars, present in all editions.
