What can African countries learn from Brazil’s
inclusive growth and development?
Brazil has emerged as a significant economic power in the last decade, combining accelerated growth with falling poverty and inequality. This achievement is globally recognised – nowhere more so than among the emerging economies in Africa.
This innovative, DFID-funded research programme, based at the University of Manchester brings together an international team of researchers, examining how Brazil's development experience can be used and adapted for African countries.
IRIBA focuses on two main research questions:
Is there a Brazilian model of development?
Phase 1 of the programme investigates the nature and sources of Brazil's inclusive growth performance.
What can African countries learn from Brazil?
Phase 2 supports research assessing Brazil's inclusive growth from the perspective of emerging economies in sub-Saharan Africa.
