Conectas Retrospective 2018

Check out the special retrospective on the most significant human rights themes of 2018

The year 2018 was particularly challenging for all those who defend democracy and who believe in tolerance, diversity and the plurality of ideas.

From the Venezuelan migration crisis, that sparked a wide range of xenophobic reactions in society, to an explosion of police lethality, endorsed by political authorities and spurred by an intervention in public security in Rio de Janeiro and then the polarisation of the electoral debate, marked by a campaign orchestrated by misinformation and a discourse of hatred.

The twelve months were marked by irreparable losses, like that of the Rio councilwoman Marielle Franco and, more recently, the capoeira master, Moa do Katendê, but also by some important victories, like Brazil’s ratification of the Arms Trade Treaty.
