At the start of the IRIBA project a year ago, co-research directors Armando Barrientos and Ed Amann presented their initial thinking on the Brazilian model and its implications for African countries to a UNU-Wider conference on inclusive growth.
With the first phase research now concluded, their take on the nature of the Brazilian development model has been published as a UNU-Wider working paper. The paper expands on the IRIBA synthesis report, particularly in highlighting the specific policy implications for African countries.
However, if you’d prefer a summary of the research, we’ve just published our 10 key findings on the Brazilian development model. If you think we’ve missed anything, please let us know below.
