Public Integrity Index: 6.26

Brazil has been progressing steadily over the past ten years on transparency, e-government, elimination of the impunity culture and e-participation. It still has much to improve on administrative burden, regulatory quality and press freedom. Its neighbor Uruguay offers the best model for continuing what is already a positive evolution. However, quality of governance varies wildly across different geographical regions, posing a challenge for Brazil’s federalism on how to prevent the poorest regions with the highest inequality from falling behind and dragging down the rest. Controlling authoritarian tendencies is also a challenge.
