Abstract: This paper analyzes the rapid development of the Brazilian aluminum industry and the subsequent deindustrialization of its most technologically advanced and capital-intensive processing stage. The paper argues that the interaction of five phases of globalization over the last century and a half with the strategies of aluminum firms and state development strategies explains this dramatic rise and decline.

"The Brazil-United States Economic Development Commission (JBUSEDC) - A Case Study on Brazil-U.S. Technical Cooperation during the Cold War (1951-1953)" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the LASA, Boston Marriott Copley Place, Boston, MA, USA, May 24, 2019 <Not Available>. 2020-01-24 <>

Abstract: Comprised by American and Brazilian members, and set up under the provisions of Truman’s Point Four program, the main objective of the Joint Brazil-US Economic Development Commission (1951-1953) was to come up with elaborate studies on key bottlenecks for Brazil's economic development and to formulate projects to be submitted to US and multilateral financial organizations, such as the World Bank and the Export-Import Bank. The perspective of receiving economic aid was an innovation and made Brazilians nurture high expectations regarding the Joint Commission and the partnership with the United States. The Joint Commission had a crucial role in pursuing economic studies on Brazil's main development challenges, in the formulation of key ideas as to strategies for economic planning, and on medium and long terms institutional impacts.
Despite the JBUSEDC importance, there is an evident scholarly gap about it. Overall, the Joint Commission is only mentioned as part of broader analyses about Brazilian politics and economics in the context of Brazil-U.S. bilateral relations in the 1950s. Hence, the objective of this paper is to, based on primary sources, address the dynamics of the work within the Joint Commission, its expectations and specific practices. This analysis has the potential not only to elucidate more specific aspects of the JBUSEDC actions in Brazil, but also to shed light on its organization and impacts in the country in the early Cold War years.

4. Moura de Souza, Cléssio. "Youth and Violence in Brazil: Exploring Youth’s Narratives about Street Violence Related to Drug and Social Order in Brazil’s Most Violent City" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASC Annual Meeting, Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL, Nov 14, 2012 <Not Available>. 2020-01-24 <>
Publication Type: Poster
Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: Studies carried out by the Sangari Institut, which analyze homicide cases registered in the Brazilian Information system of Mortality (SIM), show two important conclusions: 1.) young males play an important role in the increase of violence in recent years; 2.) violence is migrating to small and medium-sized cities in Brazil. These two conclusions are the initial basis on which this research project focuses.

This project focuses on a qualitative analysis of youths’ perception on street violence as it relates to drugs and their involvement in street violence. Another focus of this research is to examine how migration and economic growth have been affecting the city of Maceió through the increase of youth street violence.

The research is based on an explanatory qualitative study. And methodology consists of interviews and participative observation, in-depth case studies of youth and their violence trajectory. During individual interviews with male youth (15 - 24 years of age), biographical information will be collected as well as the effect and the role that street violence plays for them. Fieldwork will concentrate on personal interviews to elicit information on the particularities of youth violence, especially in the perception of youths, and the role that violence plays for them.
