Content analysis of official foreign policy speeches (ACPOLEX)

Danielle Costa da Silva and Beatriz Triani (July 25th, 2020)

We started to build the database of official speeches by Brazilian authorities, mainly presidents, in 2012, and have since then constantly updated it according to the succession of presidents and the years of government. All speeches by ex-presidents are available on the website of the Library of the Presidency of the Republic, having been downloaded, organized and inserted in the speech bank of this project. Currently, the speech bank covers from José Sarney until the first year of Jair Bolsonaros government (2019).

Brazilian and world-wide interdisciplinary research centers and networks on climate change

List updated on April 11, 2021

The centers, networks, observatories, and research programs included in this list were selected based on the following criteria:

  • They conduct interdisciplinary (or transdisciplinary, in some rarer cases) research on climate change.
  • They promote communication and dialogue activities between the world of science and the field of public policy at all levels (local, national, regional, and global).
  • They are in favor of the design of public policies to face the harmful effects and causes that generate the problem of global climate change, that is, they do not adopt or disclose denialism and contrarian attitudes as to the role of science in the debate on climate change. This does not mean that they cannot take on critical positions in relation to the world of science and the field of public policies, or even in relation to the role of private and non-governmental actors in matters of climate change.

The centers, networks, observatories, and programs are presented according to geographic divisions and, within each region or country, in alphabetical order.
