The democratic crisis and legal-institutional frameworks: an analysis based on the relationship between politics and law


The project aims to investigate how the Brazilian legal-institutional framework of its political regime, in their correlation with factors of a political, economic, global, sociocultural and technological nature, explain the crisis of Brazilian democracy, considering its peculiarities and the global trends. Its specific objectives are: (1) to develop a conceptual mapping based on contemporary bibliographic production on the current crisis of liberal-representative democracy, identifying its correlations with the legal-institutional frameworks; (2) to develop a critical analysis of the conceptual mapping, discussing the limits of the issues, methods and theoretical categories observed; (3) to develop an institutional mapping of the legal arrangements for Brazilian democracy as an explanatory dimension of its crisis; (4) to collate the institutional mapping of Brazilian democracy with corresponding arrangements from other democracies taken as reference (Chile, United States of America and United Kingdom) to, from an exploratory perspective, formulate hypotheses about the specifics of the Brazilian crisis. The analysis period will focus on cases, events and academic work between the years of 2008-2022. The references made to former cases, events and bibliography will be conveyed in settings that relate to the framework established above. The project will employ the methodological approaches of conceptual mapping, institutional mapping and qualitative exploratory comparative study of cases. The techniques employed will be the critical review of the relevant literature, the analysis of normative texts and, in a complimentary basis, of empirical data already outlined and systematized.
