Latin America and Caribbean

Spotlight series: IGARAPÉ

The Igarapé Institute was formed in 2011 to raise the level of debate and action on issues of security and development in Brazil, across the Americas and in the South. The name, Igarapé, is a local indigenous word for "small river". The Institute sees its role as a channel linking global decision makers with local actors and a broker bringing Brazil. Here we turn look at the Igarapé Institute, as part of our Spotlight series profiling research organisations based in developing countries.
