THE POSSIBLE PATHS OF A RANDOM GOVERNMENT IN FRONT OF THE PRACTICE OF TORTURE: NOTES AND PERSPECTIVES IN A CONTEXT OF GOVERNMENT SUPPORT FOR SERIOUS VIOLATIONS OF HUMAN RIGHTS IN BRAZIL

Paulo Endo About the author

Abstract

The article examines the possibilities of adopting systematic torture in Brazil after the outcome of 2019 elections. The unprecedented fact in the history of the country in which a candidate who openly supports torture was elected proposes unprecedented challenges to research and political acts in Brazil from 2019. I will also briefly examine the context of naturalization of torture in the democratic period in the country and some hypotheses on the consequences of this practice in the coming years.
