National Human Development Report Brazil


Racism, poverty and violence: The Report analyzes racial inequalities in such areas as income, education, health, employment, housing and violence, and concludes that black people in Brazil face more difficult human development conditions in all of these areas. The study also dispels several racial myths, such as scientific racism and racial democracy, and looks at the history of the black movement, current challenges, as well as the political poverty now confronting the black population. Based on this analysis and strong statistical evidence, the Report offers several policy recommendations designed to target silent racist policies and decrease levels of inequality across the country.
