Race and Democracy

Race and Democracy Project in the Americas: Brazil and the United States:

“The Race and Democracy in the Americas Project,” a collaborative research program with Afro-Brazilian scholars is one of NCOBPS' many ventures. Co-sponsored conferences were held on racial politics in the United States and Brazil. Planning and preliminary work on the project was enabled by a grant from the National Science Foundation. The National Political Science Review, Volume 9: 2003, features select articles from this project.

The principal objectives of the project are:

  • To foster collaborative, cross-national research projects on race and politics in the United States and Brazil, focusing on African-descended populations, involving NCOBPS members and Afro-Brazilian social scientists on each project
  • To deliberately develop the work as interdisciplinary
  • To develop cross-national mentor relationships between junior and senior scholars
  • To encourage junior Afro-Brazilian scholars to study political science
  • To encourage higher education leaders to recognize the fruitfulness of such collaborative, cross-national patterns of generating and conducting original research
  • To highlight for Brazilian political and higher educational leaders the importance of increasing the number of Afro-Brazilians admitted to colleges and universities, as well as to advanced degree programs
