Fundação Perseu Abramo (Brazil)

democracy

Fundação Perseu Abramo is a brazilian NGO created by the Workers' Party (WP) by the decision of its National Council on May 5, 1996. This paved the way for the realization of an old aspiration of the WP, which was an area outside the party to develop forums where activities take place such as political and ideological thinking, promoting debates, studies and surveys, with coverage of the plurality of opinions and without preconceived ideas, which can rarely be found in the daily struggles. The establishment of this institution had already been tried with the Wilson Pinheiro Foundation, who worked for some time, supported by the participation of some of the most eminent intellectuals and party leaders, but it has to end its work for various reasons, including the instability of financial resources.
