    Police Violence Against Black People Is on the Rise in Brazil

    Police brutality, by which Afro-Brazilians are particularly affected, is increasing alarmingly in Brazil. President Jair Bolsonaro and other extreme-right politicians are further encouraging police violence with tough-on-crime discourses and policies. The authors of this GIGA Focus analyse the situation.
