Ms. Dilma Rousseff, former President of Brazil (2011 -2016), will deliver a speech at Brown University (Providence, Rhode Island) on Monday (April 10) not about her specialty (Economics) but about the “Challenges for Democracy in Brazil”, as part of the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs Distinguished Speaker Series.
Brown University didn’t specify whether Ms. Rousseff will include some paragraphs to explain to the foreign audience about the huge corruption scheme that transformed Petrobras into a bribery machine that according Operation Lava-Jato (Car Wash) transferred vast resources to the Workers’ Party presidential campaign.
For sake of clarity, Ms. Rousseff’s lecture will be delivered in Portuguese and simultaneously translated into English. The 4 p.m. event is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required. Rousseff will answer questions submitted by the audience at the close of her address.
