Repository of Civil Society Initiatives Against the Pandemic

Our repository brings research, information, and data about actions and initiatives carried out by civil society and social movements to support the population and pressure for action from the government and other authorities.

We are a research group studying the relations between Society and State

Neste domingo dia 26, acontecerá o lançamento presencial do livro ativismo institucional organizado pela professora @Rebecca_Abers. O evento acontecerá às 16 horas na 36° feira do livro de Brasília. O local será no complexo cultural da República.


Saiu um novo artigo das professoras @mvonbulow e @Rebecca_Abers sobre a relação entre o governo Bolsonaro e o negacionismo pandêmico. Propõe que a compreensão desta relação exige olhar para o papel dos movimentos sociais da direita.
