Grants to this Grantee
for a project to explore Brazil's role in the global nuclear order  
Grants to the Faculdades Catolicas and Fundacao Getulio Vargas would allow these two universities to continue to lay the ground for a much-needed debate about Brazil’s nuclear policies within the country and internationally. The Hewlett Foundation sees a need for field-building because until now, Brazil’s posture toward nuclear technology has been determined by specific interests rather than receiving a full airing of its merits and implications. To establish a framework for meaningful discourse, the projects are building understanding between experts and policymakers in Brazil and the international community about Brazil’s nuclear policy, what Brazilian leaders envision for their nuclear energy program, and how they plan to engage in global nonproliferation efforts. We have worked with project leaders from both organizations to transition the projects to other funders inside and outside Brazil after the Hewlett Foundation exits the field.
