n Latin American Report - Academic freedom in Brazil

Volume 16, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0256-6060



The paper deals with academic freedom in Brazil. Brazil is characterized as a hierarchical society and traditionally intellectuals spring from the ruling elites. Dictatorship (1964-1985) strengthened this characteristic but the end of military rule did not radically change the picture. Academic freedom is thus still limited by patronage inside and outside academia. Academic freedom is now limited by the internalization of submission.

El escrito trata de la libertad académica en Brasil. Brasil se caracteriza por ser una sociedad jerárquica y tradicionalmente los intelectuales surgen de las clases dirigentes. La dictadura (1964-1985) reforzó esta situación pero el final del gobierno militar no cambió el escenario de forma radical. De este modo la libertad académica es limitada por un patrocinio dentro y fuera de la academia. Ahora la libertad académica se ve limitada por la internalización de la sumisión.
