Internet, social media lives, what would our months of confinement have been like without them? And what would this “new normal” look like, with restricted physical contacts, if we didn’t have the option of shortening distances through an online connection? These tools have gained a new role and will, for a long time, be even more essential.
Aware of trends, the Brazil Africa Institute strengthened its position, holding a series of live debates, online, throughout the months of May and June 2020, which enrich the international field. The book REFLECTIONS ON THE IMPACTS OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC ON THE WORLD compiles the contributions of each participant and is the genesis of the IBRAF Series, a publishing label that aims at shedding light on the Brazilian and African agendas, disseminating information on major issues of political, economic, social and cultural nature.
