Bolsonaro and the Inequalities of Geographical Development in Brazil

Abstract / Resumen / Resumo

The election of Jair Bolsonaro to president in Brazil in 2018 shocked the world. Renowned for his conservative views and accused by many of defending fascist ideology, Bolsonaro ran as candidate for the previously insignificant Social Liberal Party (PSL), as part of a coalition calling itself “Brazil above Everything, God above All”. This coalition was formed by the PSL and another small party, the Brazilian Labor Renewal Party (PRTB), to which his vice president General Mourão is affiliated.
