24 Hour Conference on Global Organized Crime

This session will discuss the worsening of police violence in recent years in Brazil, even as national homicide numbers have been consistently declining. This is a particularly important discussion in the context of President Jair Bolsonaro’s rhetoric of aggressive use of force against suspected criminals. The panel will also discuss the continued threat of organised crime and the relatively newer threat of militias (vigilante groups linked to former or off-duty Military Police officers) in cities.
