The Latin America and the Caribbean Competency Virtual Series is an opportunity for students to learn more about different topics related to this area and connect with the guest speakers outside of the classroom environment. The students will also have the chance of discussing and asking questions regarding the topic of the presentation. The third presentation will be by João V. Guedes-Neto, Ph.D. Candidate in Political Science at the University of Pittsburgh. He will talk about Bureaucratic Polarization. In times of political polarization, we tend to pay attention to conflicts in Congress. Yet, this is just a minor part of the problem. Polarization exists everywhere, even in the public administration. Relying on data from Brazil and the United States, this presentation discusses the causes and consequences of the conflicts between civil servants in government. After all, can we get things done when everyone seems to hate each other?
