Global Brazil Lab Research Trip to Baixada

As part of Duke’s Global Brazil Lab, a team of eight students and two faculty went to Brazil during the summer of 2016. They lived and worked in Baixada, a lower-income region in the city’s lowlands, and collaborated with scholars and students at the Multidisciplinary Institute of the Federal Rural University of Rio de Janeiro to assess how changes to higher education will impact social mobility in the country.
