The King's Brazil Institute, founded in 2008, provides a focal point for Brazil-related activities across a range of academic disciplines.
Promoting an understanding of Brazil and developing the profile of Brazilian studies at university level in the UK, the Institute coordinates and develops Brazil-related research capabilities and Brazil-focused programmes of study at King's. Their work also involves building links with Brazilian organisations in education, the cultural and creative sectors, business and government.
Through these activities, and as part of the College's broader internationalisation strategy, the Institute aims to contribute to a growing interdisciplinary interest in Brazil among both students and academics at King's.
