Author

Cornwall, Andrea; Romano, Jorge; Shankland, Alex

Description

In the mid-1980s, Brazil emerged from a military dictatorship and gave rise to democratic innovation. This paper suggests the contribution of that of Brazil's democratic innovations may lie not only in their institutional design but also in what Brazilian experience can show us about the pre-conditions for effective participatory governance.
