Public Integrity Index: 6.26

Over the past decade, Brazil has shown steady progress  in transparency, e-government, elimination of the impunity culture, and e-participation. However, it still has much to improve on in terms of addressing administrative burden, regulatory quality, and press freedom. While neighboring Uruguay offers the best model for continuing what is already a positive evolution, the quality of governance varies wildly across different geographical regions. This poses a challenge for Brazil’s federalism regarding how to prevent the poorest regions with the highest inequality from falling behind and negatively affecting others. In addition, controlling authoritarian tendencies is also a challenge.
