Parliaments and Digital Engagement – fellowship in Brazil

Professor Leston-Bandeira was invited for a five weeks visiting fellowship at the Brazilian Institute for Digital Democracy (INCT.DD), to work with scholars in Brazil currently working on digital engagement, particularly with a focus on parliaments.  The INCT.DD is a network of over 40 research labs and universities in Brazil and elsewhere. Professor Leston-Bandeira also did several presentations whilst in Brazil and worked closely with officials in the Brazilian Congress, having also undertaken a number of interviews with officials. This fellowship is the result of ongoing collaboration between the Centre for Democratic Engagement and INCT.DD.
