Brazilian Public Opinion Ahead of the World Cup: A Launch of the Pew Research Center’s Brazil Survey

June 03, 2014 // 10:00am12:30pm

A year after widespread protests and weeks ahead of the World Cup and national elections, the Pew Research Center asked Brazilians what they think about conditions in their country. The poll, part of the Pew Research Center’s annual international survey, asked Brazilians for their opinion on the direction of the country and the future of its economy; Brazil’s place in the world; problems like rising prices, unemployment, crime, corruption and pollution; national leaders and institutions, including President Dilma Rousseff and her challengers in the October election; and whether the World Cup will help or hurt the economy and the country’s image.  

On June 3rd, the Brazil Institute of the Woodrow Wilson Center will host a presentation of the report’s main findings by Juliana Menasce Horowitz, senior researcher at the Pew Research Center and principal author of the survey report. Her presentation will be followed by a discussion among leading Brazilian observers in Washington and São Paulo.
