In 1964, a military dictatorship that would last for 21 years was installed in Brazil. After a relatively smooth transition to democracy in 1985, Brazil is today considered one of the emerging powers in the world. This CMI Insight reviews the main characteristics of the military regime and the subsequent transition to democracy, and examines how this historical legacy impacts Brazilian democracy today.
