The evolution of the welfare state has redefined citizenship in Brazil. By comparing the social insurance and assistance schemes instituted under President Getúlio Vargas (1930-45) to those of recent Workers’ Party presidents (2003-present), Wendy Hunter will analyze the causes, consequences, and challenges of expanding the welfare state and extending citizenship to more Brazilians.
Wendy Hunter is a professor of Government at the University of Texas at Austin. Her books include The Transformation of the Workers’ Party in Brazil and Eroding Military Influence in Brazil.

Center for Latin American Studies
The Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) at UC Berkeley is a National Resource Center dedicated to promoting research and understanding about issues affecting Latin America.
Our primary mission is three-fold: we develop an active community of scholars and students on the Berkeley campus whose work is of importance to the region; we create linkages between scholars, policy makers, public intellectuals and other leading figures to develop new policy solutions; and we enhance understanding of Latin American cultures, politics and development strategies.
