Como deveria ter sido o artigo de Lula ao NYT

Articles & Op-EdsBrian WinterWednesday, August 15, 2018

"Dezesseis anos atrás, o Brasil estava em crise; seu futuro era incerto. Os mercados estavam despencando porque temiam que eu fosse eleito presidente. Mas minhas posições —no passado radicais— haviam evoluído e eu tinha o sonho de transformar o Brasil em um dos países mais prósperos e democráticos do planeta.

Brian Winter da AS/COA sugere como o editorial que o ex-presidente brasileiro Lula da Silva publicou no The New York Times deveria ter sido escrito.

Get the Numbers: Immigration Enforcement in the Trump Era

InfographicsBrian HarperTuesday, August 14, 2018

There is little doubt that immigration stands as a core issue for U.S. President Donald Trump, who’s signed nine related executive orders since taking office. Per a Migration Policy Institute (MPI) report, his administration’s approach to the issue has been characterized by heightened enforcement, cuts to humanitarian aid, and increased barriers to legal immigration.

It's no secret the U.S. president talks tough when it comes to immigration. So how do the numbers break down?

Venezuela Update: 10 Ways Maduro Could Leave Office 

Hemispheric UpdatesHolly K. SonnelandThursday, August 9, 2018

Nobody expected Nicolás Maduro to last this long. The former bus driver, who first took over as acting president of Venezuela on March 8, 2013, within days of Hugo Chávez's death, has improbably outlasted economic crises, internal revolts, and even a drone attack. Most opposition leaders say there’s little hope of a regular, democratic transition, given the administration’s disregard for constitutional order or rule of law.

There’s an easy way and a hard way for the Venezuelan president to go—and lots of ways in between.

Four years ago, Latin America was home to a third of the world’s female presidents. Today, it has none. But that doesn’t mean the region hasn’t made progress in advancing women’s role in the political sphere. In fact, as of the inauguration of Colombia’s new administration on August 7, there are more female vice presidents—in 12 different countries—in the hemisphere than ever before.

With Mexico’s new Congress, Latin America will be home to three of the world’s four countries with the greatest female representation in legislatures.

Explainer: Colombia's Special Jurisdiction for Peace (JEP)

ExplainersBrian HarperHolly K. SonnelandFriday, August 3, 2018

Twenty months after a landmark peace agreement with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia passed the country’s Congress, the implementation of peace remains fragile. One of the issues at the heart of it all is a newly installed extrajudicial court system to try ex-rebels and others for their various crimes during more than five decades of armed conflict.

The issue of how former FARC guerrillas face justice under the extrajudicial JEP court system continues to dominate and divide Colombia.
